Graduate degrees in Psychology; 40+ years of management experience (applying positive psychology and spiritual maturity for success) in a variety of careers including law enforcement, corrections, college teaching, sport psychology, private security, business consulting, and building maintenance. Attending and giving hundreds of personal/professional development workshops, having a relentness will to grow, and reading over 4,000 books in my lifetime has greatly influenced my thinking. Passing the 60 year mark, I realize I am more of a student than a teacher...I've learned that all I think I know may not necessarily be so! My passion is to openly seek truth, experience problems, and discern wisdom from the outer fringes of reality, bring it back and experience it firsthand to achieve success, and pass on what I learn to others as an unselfish service.
