Mushroom Montoya circumnavigated the globe after killing young boys, old men, women, and children in Vietnam. Now, as a shaman, he heals the planet one person at a time. As an author and poet, he heals the planet one poem and one book at a time. As a bereaved father, he advocates for organ donation. As an adoptive parent, he advocates for adoption, especially of older children who all too often don’t get adopted. As an architect, he designed the country’s largest sleep studies lab for the Veterans Medical Center in Long Beach, among many other facilities.
