He traveled with the U.S. Navy to the Aleutian Islands, Mississippi, Hong Kong, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Korea, Japan, and Washington state, escaping each time by the narrowest of margins from overwhelming odds and risks. He avoided a tour (and hostage status) of the American Embassy in Tehran in 1978, and barely remained upright during a 6.5 earthquake in Alaska in 1977. His books include Psychological Astrology for the Psyche, a handbook guide for holistic counselors, parents, and healers, published in 2010, Smile!

He recently lived on a five-acre farm in Boaz, Alabama, where he and his (ex)-wife raised chickens, llamas, kept horses, a mule, and cats. He enjoys playing with a magical web of metaphysical colleagues, associates, and other Lightworkers on Earth and beyond. He is extremely fond of teasing, challenging, and ungluing the minds of students with ideas of how to set a paper on fire for an “A”, medical documentation on topics like The Blue People of Kentucky, and assorted social injustices and upheavals. He returned to Humboldt county, California, where he was a DJ on Blue Ox Radio (KKPD 97.7) with his show “Rock & Blues Stew.” He recently incarnated as Oscar Wilde, as well as a simultaneous existence and very personal association with the construction of the Titanic.
