I am a returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Korea-6), and retired statistician (Hahnemann Medical College, and the U.S. Naval Academy), child welfare worker (Delaware County Sexual Abuse Center), religious educator (6 years as Coordinator of Adult Religious Education for PhYM), and thrice prison worker (ministry supported by Western Quarter of PhYM, AVP lead trainer, addictions counselor at CSI Chester).
I was also on staff at Pendle Hill for two and a half years in the late 1980s and have since led workshops there, and I represented BaYM on the General Board of Friends United Meeting in the 1990s. I have an M.A in Theology from Villanova University. Now retired, I continue to offer workshops in Quakerism and the Bible as requested.
My experience in Korea has greatly influenced my life (my first wife, and mother of my son Geoffrey, is Korean). My early spiritual life was Buddhist and was closely tied to the martial arts (before becoming a Quaker). I continue to practice the Taoist discipline of Yang style Taichi-Chuan.
