For the past 12 years I have been a meditator and spiritual author, with one published book ("Spontaneous Beauty") and a blog by the same name to my credit. I am a licensed attorney and have practiced as a tax consultant to major corporations during a forty-year career. I was born in Glendale, California, and have lived in Honolulu, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Dallas, and Denver before moving to Las Vegas where I now reside.
