My name is Zac Henson.  I'm a redneck.  I've lived a very interesting life.  I've been a short order cook, a sales associate at a department store, a general store clerk, an auto mechanic, a plant worker, an undergraduate student, a pizza delivery driver, a special needs camp counselor, a graduate student, a graduate student instructor, a researcher, a professor, a community organizer, a consultant, an Uber driver, and a newspaper delivery person.

I have very interesting political beliefs; some have called me an anarchist, but I don't really care about labels.  I just think that all people are beautiful, creative, and loving with unique gifts and I don't believe in anyone trying to control anyone else.  I'm marginally famous in Birmingham where most people think I'm crazy.  This may be accurate, but I'm usually right when I say things.

The most important person to me is my wife, Robyn.  She's a community organizer like me and we have long sometimes intense debates about grassroots political strategies.  Like me, she is a fighter and we often fight each other, but both of us secretly love it, or maybe not so secretly.  She's way more respected than me because people don't think she's crazy and one of our friends told us that she "smooths out my rough edges" as if that was possible.

I'm writing a book about my life called "Confessions of a Mad Redneck: A Birmingham Boy's Struggle to Create Himself and His Home."  It's about all the wacko stuff I've done in my life, but it's also a story of the South and how we rednecks can live, act, and think differently, while still being proud of who we are.  For some reason, this latter statement is controversial, but I don't really care.

I hope y'all like my work; please support with whatever you can.

Peace y'all
Dr. Zac Henson, John Brown, Dr. Z, Zac, Mountain Troll, the Mad Redneck, and whatever else people call me.
