Jeff Rice was born in Nottingham, England, Earth. He has always had philosophical leanings. This has mainly expressed itself during conversations in the pub. Well, where better to have formative intellectual conversations? He once went and sat in field in the middle of nowhere, in the dark, waiting to be ‘collected’ by extraterrestrials. Something happened… but it could have just been a low-flying aircraft. Odd though. Jeff has been an environmental activist and campaigner since studying Ecology at Manchester University in the early nineties. He insists that he is neither monkey nor caveman, despite appearance.
