I was born in the tranquil countryside of southern New York State. All through my life, I have felt most at home among those gently rolling hills and verdant forests. More than anywhere else, it was there that I have always felt a strong spiritual connection to the land.
Today, decades later, I have chosen to make my home among those same New York hills. Having spent many years in and around diverse urban areas across North America - New York City, Montreal, Toronto, and Mexico City - I grew acutely sensitive to the relationship between landform features, natural and manmade, and the ways that human life develops therein.
I observed that individuals are impacted differently by the energies given off in a specific place - there was clearly much more to what goes on around us then meets the eye. I visited the Mexico City area 27 times to study the amazing relationship between earth energy vortexes, spiritual occurrences and psychic phenomena. Having traveled, worked and studied in Europe and Asia, I became even more sensitive to my connection with the land of North America. Native American culture has an understanding of this connection, and a recognition of the life that is in everything around us.

A desire for a further understanding led me to begin my informal study of Feng Shui in the early 1980s. The ancient principles of this practice provided me with a structure with which I could explain my observations, and which helped me to begin to channel the environmental energies for my own benefit and that of others.
I have enjoyed a career in education, teaching at the secondary school level, as well as two decades as a successful computer professional in the corporate world, in both the United States and Canada. During those years, I pursued my spiritual and metaphysical development, of which Feng Shui was an intrinsic part. I am extremely grateful to the many teachers and mentors that have helped me along my spiritual path.
Two women who have particularly influenced and guided me are Louise Hay and Lillian Too. Metaphysical teacher and author Louise L. Hay, who I first met in 1986, taught me that there are no limits in life other than those which we create for ourselves.

Louise Hay's writings and workshops have reinforced my own search for the spiritual connection that underlies everything in this universe. I am certified by Louise Hay to lead workshops, based on her innovative work, which have brought greater self-acceptance and self-esteem to many people. My second great influence has been Grand Master Lillian Too, the world's most popular writer on the subject of Feng Shui. My work with Grand Master Too, both in Malaysia and in the United States, helped me make substantial strides in my understanding of the complexities and fine points of Feng Shui. I appreciate the confidence that she has shown in my professional skills and talent by granting me the Lillian Too Institute of Feng Shui Master Practitioner Certification.

Some of the many other great teachers with whom I have had the honor to study or whose seminars I have attended include Malaysian Feng Shui authority Grand Master Yap Chang Hai, His Holiness Grand Master Prof. Yin Lun (leader of the Black Tantric Buddhist Sect), renowned spiritual teachers Patricia Crane and Rick Nichols, authors and teachers Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and Alan Cohen, and Denise Linn, renowned authority on energetic space clearing and Native American tradition.
Additionally, I have studied Xuan Kong Feng Shui through the Yap Chang Hai Feng Shui Center of Excellence, and I have been granted Professional Certification by the Feng Shui Institute of Canada. I hold a CertIficate of Studies in Vaastu Shastra and Sthapatya Veda (Indian Vedic Architecture) from Vaastu Expert Olga Mandodari Sokolova, in the lineage of Padma Bhushan Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts degree (History & Secondary Education) from the City University of New York, and a Master of Science degree (Computer Science) from the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, Long Island. I am a member of the International Feng Shui Guild and I adhere to both the International Feng Shui Guild Code of Ethics and the Feng Shui Institute of Canada Code of Ethics.
In summary, I have studied Feng Shui in all its forms since 1982. I have practiced authentic classical Feng Shui on a full-time basis since 1999. It gives me great pleasure to bring my extensive background to every 8 Feng Shui home & business Consultation Service.
