Meet the Author


I have a BS in mathematics from St. Lawrence University, a BS in electrical engineering from Penn State University, and a master’s in electrical engineering from Villanova University. I spent seventeen years as a design engineer and technical manager at Boeing, where I was responsible for designing automatic flight control and avionics systems.

After Boeing, I spent nine years in the U.S. Government’s Senior Executive Service (SES) with the US Army directing avionics and command and control R&D. During this period I also co-directed joint Army/NASA laboratories at NASA Langley and NASA Ames and was the US Army’s representative and U.S Government lead on the Avionics Committee for NATO’s Advisory Group for Aerospace Research and Development. I then created and was the CEO of Cobham Defense Electronics Systems (CDES) Corp, a subsidiary of Cobham, plc, for 15 years. When I retired CDES had become the world’s leading military microwave subsystem company. After writing The Endless Journey, I created and was the host of The Common Sense Spirituality Show, which ran live for 2 years on W4CY radio and also had a weekly podcast called Aspects of Spirituality

My Search

Throughout my life I spent my free time in an exhaustive search for the most plausible answers that I could find to the classic questions concerning our existence: Who are we? Is there a God? Why is the cosmos here? How shall we live our life? What is important?

Like most of us, for years I was confused by life’s illusions. But after an exhaustive search through religious texts, ancient Eastern and Western history, science, metaphysics, philosophy and paranormal experiences, I eventually found that truth is available to anyone committed to search for it. When I began to find truth life started to make sense. The answers are right in front of us; but we fail to see them because we are so focused on our materialistic lifestyle. There is a divine plan in which we are an intricate and important part. What I believe to be the answers to life’s most basic questions are detailed in “Our Eternal Existence” and “The Endless Journey”.
