Logan Albright is the Head Writer and Sound Engineer at Free the People. He is the author of Conform or Be Cast Out: The (Literal) Demonization of Nonconformists and Our Servants, Our Masters: How Control Masquerades as Assistance.
With a background in economics and policy, Logan is responsible for making sure that the organization’s messaging remains rigorous as well as persuasive. He also directed the award-winning documentary The Right to Bear 3D Printers, and as a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, he contributes original music to many of Free the People’s films.
Logan received his Master’s degree in economics from Georgia State University in 2011, before promptly setting out for DC to fight for liberty. He first discovered the ideas of liberty during his time at Oberlin College, where his contrarian nature drove him into countless hours of heated debate at this bastion of progressive thought. Logan occasionally takes time out from his busy schedule of railing against the evils of government to play the part of musician, amateur novelist, and moustache enthusiast.
