A longtime fugitive from the worlds of Wall Street and Capitol Hill, King is also a social justice activist, who regularly participates in nonviolent public actions to address climate change, economic injustice, institutionalized racism, inhumane immigration policy, oppressive violence and militarism. He quests for the intersections of art and writing in social justice movement building, something King calls Artivism. He lives in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California with his wife, Lisa, dog, Bogart, and sun conure parrot, Sunny.
