Graduated from the University of Florida (Gainesville, FLA) in 1978 with a bachelor's degree in Cognitive and Perceptual Psychology, where I first began taking an interest in Parapsychology seriously. Became the first person in the United States to graduate with a Master of Science degree in Parapsychology from a fully accredited University (John F. Kennedy University, Orinda, CA) in March 1981. Published articles in Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research and the Research in Parapsychology publication in the early 1980's. My interests in what I often refer to as "Psiology" include the influence of music and progressive relaxation on inducing psi conducive states; PK metal bending; and, the relationship between States of Consciousness, psi events, and perceptions of "reality."
Athough my career path has not continued as an active Parapsychological Research Scientist, I continue to track the field's ongoing research efforts and progress toward more widespread acceptance within Science and Academia. Currently, I manage one of the largest health care data warehouses in the United States which supports a variety of state, national and local health care program research.

The Parapsychological Association is an international professional organization of scientists and scholars engaged in the study of psi (or 'psychic') experiences, such as telepathy, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, psychic healing, and precognition. The primary objective of the PA is to achieve a scientific understanding of these experiences.
First established in 1957, the PA has been an affiliated organization of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) since 1969. The PA is a non-profit, non-adjudicating organization that endorses no ideologies or beliefs other than the value of rigorous scientific and scholarly inquiry.
