Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The BSc in Microbiology gave way to screenwriting and I was asked to go to LA for meetings. While there, I decided it was more in my nature to go live with the homeless of Venice Beach. This was the beginning of a massive adventure that ended in India. Recently published memoir: "Inside the Wall: from Hollywood to Homeless to Higher Consciousness with an Avatar" chronicles the journey. Available at Amazon.com as paperback and Kindle.
