James Workman, Staff Writer

James Workman is a San Francisco-based writer and entrepreneur, author of the award-winning Heart of Dryness: How the last Bushmen can help us endure the coming age of permanent drought, and founder of the online water savings trading platform, AquaShares. He studied at Yale and Oxford, and taught at Wesleyan and Whitman colleges. But his real education came from blowing up dams, releasing wolves, restoring wildland fires, guiding safaris, smuggling water to dissidents, breaking down in Africa’s Kalahari Desert, getting married, and becoming a dad (not in that order).
