My Journey

I've had an international corporate career as physicist and software engineer. After living for nearly 20 years in hectic and busy San Francisco I moved to Mount Shasta, a quiet mountain village in Northern California. There I now provide healing services and co-facilitate spiritual retreats.

Coming from an artistic family, throughout my life I have found balance and a creative outlet in music, drawing, watercolor painting and photography. In my photography I look for the beauty, wonder and awe of nature and the human form. My art in general reflects a spiritual worldview, a notion of being one, an expression of an omnipresent consciousness. For my musical expressions I use instruments like didgeridoo and drum, and the most magical instrument of all: the voice.

My life is a demonstration of living in tune with —and following direction of— an Inner Knowing.
