|I am dedicated to the holistic development of my highest potential in order to serve the circle of life in the manifestation of the highest values and visions I know. I would like to thank the thousands of friends that have guided me through all of my wanderings, and make this website available to them. I was raised in the heart of Africa as a missionary kid. I have traveled extensively in over 50 countries. All of my life I have been on a quest of true personal empowerment and community service. This quest has led me to the firm conviction that at the core nature of life we all seek the same basic things: Love and Freedom from fear. Even greed and hate are traceable to these needs. I hold this single ideal as a reason to hope for community co-operation. I would like to invite my friends to join me in the creation of dreams. I offer the circle of life all of my creative potential and skills, my love for the music of the soul through primitive percussion and the arts of community celebration. Here are some ideas and ways that I am serving this healing dream:|
