Meghan MacRae grew up in Vancouver, Canada, but spent many years living in the remote woods. Living in the shadow of grizzly bears, cougars and the other predators of the wilderness taught her about the dark side of nature, and taught her to accept her place in nature's order as their prey. She is co-founder of CVLT Nation webzine and clothing alongside her husband Sean.

Where we came from and why we are here are two questions that have haunted human beings from the beginning of our time on this planet. As a species, we have spent millennia constructing myths and legends to give meaning to our existence on this planet, and to give hope
