About Me

My interest in parapsychology and research extends back to 1968. Originally a confirmed skeptic with respect to psi, personal experience began to indicate that I might want to reconsider. My natural curiousity took hold, and I found myself scrutinizing claims ranging from telepathy, to remote viewing to mind-matter-interactions. The net of the work and that of other colleagues has now, over 40 years later, led me to the inescapable conclusion that many effects are quite real.

My professional experience is in spectrum engineering, with expertise ranging from extremely low frequency signals all the way up to cosmic ray behaviors. My personal interests  include magic, mentalism and the psychology of belief.

My research has included controlled field studies and proofs-of-concept in GESP and PK. My research focus involves working with gifted subjects. While I appreciate and applaud those who want to demonstrate the ubiquity of psi, the highly exceptional phenomena and abilities potentially teach us the most. Any theory of psi must consider all possible cases and reliable observations,. Often the extreme studies that challenge us most are a direct result of work with truly gifted subjects. Hence my continuuing interest in them and the extraordinary findings they produce.

I plan two large-scale studies going forward.  The first is an ambitious attempt to replicate experimental apparitional phenomena in controlled laboratory conditions, include monitoring agents' and percipients' neurophysiologies  and environments. The second experiment will be an attempt to demonstrate and replicate prior macro-PK work in controlled conditions. More strong quantitative macro-PK data is needed since macro-PK is one of the most difficult phenomena to explain and, perhaps as important, skeptically dismiss.
