I write. I teach. I lecture and I love to read.

I write to connect with others on this journey we call life. I teach in order to work with others on ways to enlarge the spirit and encourage creative growth. I present lectures and read from my work in order to build bridges and share ideas. And I read as a way of living in state of permanent evolution.

I like to think that you're visiting my site because there's some way that we can make a connection. Perhaps that connection lies in one of my books, workshops, or maybe you just want to share your ideas or questions with me.

It's my sincere hope that while you're here you'll find information that will challenge, enrich or inspire you.
