I entered the field of Whole Food Plant-Based Nutrition Education and Support in response to my personal challenges with severe Coronary Artery Disease. Frustrated with the idea of a future of disease symptoms, medications, interventions, surgeries, not to mention an early demise, my search lead me to Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn of Cleveland Clinic in whom I found an inspiring and knowledgeable teacher.
At the time I was obese while enjoying an organic farm experience of beef, poultry, pork, fresh eggs, and copious amounts of goat milk gotten by my own hands from daily milking. My heart had had just about enough. Even my gardens and orchards were unable to provide sufficient antidote to the damages I was inflicting on myself.
I have an Advanced teaching certificate and a Doctorate in Metaphysics. I taught development of the will for 20+ years. I am an ordained Minister and have a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University. I was mentored by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and am a frequent speaker and radio guest on the topic of Healing Coronary Artery Disease with a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet. I am founder of HeartsFlow Healing and am the creator of “The Heart-Healing System”, a dietary and lifestyle program which effectively improves vascular function in compliant clients.
As for my personal life...I have been married to my wife for 38 years. I have two biological children and five that we adopted from Kazakhstan. We have six grandchildren and counting.
I am a General Contractor and Real Estate agent.
I am a musician,a poet, and a writer of short stories. I have spent my entire adult life pursuing an esoteric understanding of religions, spirituality, philosophies, and science in effort to perceive the common thread.
That's me with my girlfriend of 38 years, gail.
We've got a marriage license in a box somewhere, I promise.
