My often boundless passion for life has led me to many wondrous places, people and experiences. It’s led me to a point in my world where I wish to retreat instead of be “out there” as I thought I wanted to be for so many years.  Many articles will be taken down or re-thought, as I take time to re-examine what it is I want most.  Below are some current or past passions:

• Director at the BOTANICAL LEGAL DEFENSE, fighting plants rights.
• My BUILDING MY OWN AIRPLANE  diary of my homebuilt Sportsman 2+2.
• My WaveFront Mastering facility in CA for mastering records.
• My Spiritual Practice and MYZEN.ORG; the only site I currently update.
• My KONA KAVA FARM in Hawaii for organic Kava Kava and vegan chocolate.
• My ENTHEOLOGY project to help preserve Shamanic Knowledge.
• My DreamHerbs website on lucid dreaming; something I adore vastly.
• My Piloting Planes and Helicopters, as well as Diving, and Surfing.
• My Motion Graphics “50 Projects in 50 Days” training.
• My Photo Journals, my Paintings and Books In Progress.

It’s difficult to squeeze all the things I find so much joy in.  I was lucky enough to produce records for most major labels and bands I adored for most of my life.  In the early 2000′s I had a life-changing spiritual experience that shifted my focus to the preservation, research, and spreading the word of Shamanism.  This included the rituals, and the sacred plants used for Shamanic rituals, while exploring the that the shamanic experience of non-duality has given me.  That passion began from a vision, and has never wavered, bringing me a richness in my life that I never would have imagined possible.  It’s taken me to many corners of the world, to Shaman and Non-Duality Conferences, to Shamanic Rituals in the Amazon Rainforest, to forming my Peruvian Coalition, to inspiring me to write a number of articles on the subject.  I’m always excited to see what the Universe has in store for me next, and that passion evolved into my spiritual practice, which is very deeply-rooted in the often-misunderstood Zen tradition.  And, as of this writing, MY PRACTICE section and MYZEN.ORG is the only part of my online world I’m focused on or updating.
