Torben Halbe was born in the German countryside and studied Biology at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland. His studies emphasized Chemistry, Neuroscience and Philosophy. He published his first non-fiction book in 2017, defending forestry against an environmentalist book that anthropomorphized trees to argue against managing forest for profit. The book was well-received by the forestry industry, so he applied to the lobby organization “German Forestry Council” and has been working there since 2018. His second book “Freedom Without Free Will”, a liberal treatise, was published in 2020. Since then, he has been active in German libertarianism.
