About Me

(See below for contact information)

I live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, on the West Coast of Canada. Over the years I’ve learned a few things, some by formal study in the social sciences at University, including Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology and Demography, but even more by personal experience and informal study.

From about the age 13 (I’m 63 now), I voraciously read books about the human spirit and human relations, including countless “Self Help” books early on, the most memorable one being Dale Carnegie’s, “How To Win Friends and Influence People.” In my late teens I delved into more, “Spiritual” disciplines, including Transcendental Meditation, variants of Buddhism, and Christianity. I’ve continued to read and study widely about numerous other religions and philosophies for most of my life. I also have a great love for the Sciences, both hard and soft, from Sociology to Cosmology.

For most of my life I’ve had an irritating, insatiable itch, constantly questioning and challenging the meaning and purpose of my life, and of Life in general, and trying especially to discover, to understand, who, what and why people are the way that they are, and why we do the things we do.

At 13 I set out upon a life-long journey to find answers to these questions. That journey almost ended in September of 2009 with a major health scare (Multiple lung-clots).

More recently I have re-examined and rediscovered my Christian roots. Turns out a critical analysis of the historical claims of Jesus yields very strong evidence for belief. I highly recommend Josh McDowells book, Evidence that Demands a Verdict, for anyone curious about this.

My hope these day’s is to leave something of value behind me, especially for my children and grand-children, but also for those who might stumble in and perhaps be enriched by something here. This website is that attempt.
