About Me I am a very passionate man who cares deeply about others who struggle through life through no fault of their own. As a Clinical Psychologist I am an activist and watchdog for those in society who are the least able to defend themselves and are the most vulnerable.

Political Leaning Liberal
Religions Non-religious Spirituality  
Eating Habits I could live on ice cream, A well balanced diet  
Wild Fact About Me I love cracking myself up when I'm alone.
My Philosophy The Energy which is us is the Source within us. My uniqueness requires that I fulfull my purpose in life given the fact that there are some things I and only I can do, and only in the ways I can do them. This is true for each of us.
What Gives Me Hope Learning to live prospectively with faith after learning retrosepctively that the Source has been there all along, even when I was not aware of Its presence. With this conscious awareness I can tap into this Energy and commit myself to maximizing my Spiritual growth and development through seeking wisdom and through altruistic service to others.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would seek to minimize or eliminate all facets of religious division by teaching the basic common, purely Spiritual concepts common to most of the world's religions.
What/who changed my life and why The event that impacted me the most was the death of my partner Adan in 1992 from AIDS-related illnesses. As he approached the end of his life we shared and consoled each other through love so that he was able to die at peace with himself and with dignity. And, through his death I was ultimately able to learn how to live.
