My Story


I have been called a Renaissance Man by the  chief of staff to a past governor of Montana. I have worked with my hands. I am an engineer, manager, business owner, activist.


I  worked my way through the boring stuff of textbooks in the Uniform Commerical Code, beginning accounting, federal acquisition regulations because I needed to know it – and the stuff of visual perception because it was interesting.


I researched my way through the academic literature on wildfires, biolab safety, highway capacity and safety because certain governmental agencies needed scrutiny. 

I read history, studied religious history because I was fascinated by it.


I thought about how to manage a group of people who are working on something more complicated than a single human being could understand because I wanted to be good at it. ​


I write non-fiction books on a range of subjects. My goal is to write the most comprehensive book in the subject, a book that is well-researched and present readers with accurate and reliable information in a readable narrative.

A meticulously researched narrative in everyday language show how to use the I Ching and get the most out of The Book of Changes no matter what your viewpoint. Shows how divination with the I Ching is merely an extension of your everyday experience, allowing you to tap deeper into your subconscious to bring forth what it already knows using the I Ching. Answers the questions, What is Yin-Yang and the Dao? How did Confucius get his words in the I Ching?

Practical narratives, illustrations, mixed with Poetic Prose and surprisingly beautiful prose from Ancient China get your heart as well as your mind engaged with The Book of Changes. Key phrases explained, showing what it meant and what it means.
