I represented BaYM on the General Board of Friends United Meeting in the 1990s. I hold an M.A in Theology from Villanova University. Now retired, I continue to offer workshops in Quakerism and the Bible as requested.

My early spiritual life (which began around age 30) was Buddhist and was closely tied to the martial arts. I continue to practice the Taoist discipline of Yang style Taichi-Chuan.
