About the Author:

Brian Runion is a former Coast Guard officer and creator of the blog and webcomic, The Claw of Knowledge. You can find him online at clawofknowledge.com, on Facebook, or by screaming 'The Claw of Knowledge' loudly at your mobile device. Brian grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where trees and mountains are appropriately-sized. He graduated from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy 2-3 years before you got there, back when it was still tough. He received his Masters in Fancy Political Stuff from the University of Michigan, and now uses those advanced skills to make cartoons in PowerPoint. He hates coffee, water chestnuts, and writing 'About the Author' pages. He likes seaweed snacks, Zipfizz, and rain.
