Patrons and fans are the heartbeat and lifeblood of creativity -- thank you for your support and encouragement of my work! 

My work is about inspiring and motivating shared understanding, nurturing relationships and community to foster unity, while fully acknowledging and respecting individual differences. This is not as easy as it sounds: it requires deep philosophical harmony, strong spiritual resonance, and sincere empathy and care -- indeed love -- for others and for oneself.

I have degrees in philosophy and mathematics, specializing in semiotics, logic, science, and technology. I am a retired IT professional (IBM, Oracle, etc.) and Christian missionary (Wycliffe Bible Translators and World Vision USA). In May 2019 I received my Doctor of Ministry (DMin) in Semiotics and Future Studies with personal friend and Lead Mentor Leonard Sweet through Portland Seminary of George Fox University. Here's an excellent Future of the Church 20-minute interview with Len, making it clear why he's a true Christian visionary for our times.

On the basis of those studies and related research, on behalf of Extinction Rebellion US (XR US) in March 2019 I founded the local XR Orlando chapter, encompassing nine of the surrounding counties. Please note that this Patreon page is to support my involvement in XR as a member. To support the XR Orlando group directly, see the separate Patreon page,
