What do I do best?

I am all about research - mind-body science research.  I am on a mission to conduct and coordinate new interdisciplinary research, with other sciences, including polytechnical resources for institutional, organizational, clinical, and ultimately individual whole person wellness.  The teacher in me is about sharing good information with as many people as possible so they can start using it right away.  So I love writing as well. This gives people access to information they can read at their kitchen table and start using right away.

What makes me the best version of myself?

Having a deep sense of curiosity about things and their interconnections.

What are my aspirations?

I am currently working with a team of interdisciplinary researchers willing to explore new areas where mind-body research can make a positive difference.  We are looking at improving human attention, focus, organization, memory, and strengthening emotions, as well as, eliminating anxiety, stress, insomnia, and PTSD.  My aspirations are to either take this team or another on a seven year mission deep into interdisciplinary and poytechnical research to create noninvasive, no harmful side effect(s), solutions for the elimination pain and suffering – be it physical, emotional, and/or cognitive – and for the increase of positive energy and happier living for people across all borders.

Also, to keep on playing musical instruments, jogging, and practicing martial arts until I am in my nineties

My Biggest Success?

Meeting the people who have evolved my thinking and life for the better – most importantly my wife and family as well as teachers, colleagues, friends and other researchers (even those with whom I have disagreed).

Earning a black belt in Kenpo Karate and teaching martial arts for over twenty-five years.

My Most Challenging Moment?

What to do with old beliefs that aren’t really helping anymore.  Assessing and presenting research/information that is inconsistent with one’s (or a group’s) conventionally accepted thoughts that are possibly more convenient, yet to some extent plateaued.  Explaining to individuals (including myself) that it’s better to know that a particular concept or technique one is about to rely on is not what we have thought and perhaps comfortably relied on for long years, but at the same time that there are benefits to knowing this in order to little by little move forward in our goal to get to more solid information and eventually maybe even the truth.

My Motto?

“Be Like Water.”  This is the guiding principle/concept of the Tao Te Ching.

My Favorite People/Role Models?

Joseph Campbell, Rosalind Franklin, Francis Crick, James Watson, Thich Nhat Hanh, the poetry of:  Galway Kinnell, Mary Oliver, and Robert Frost

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

Adirondack Mountains,; Plum Island, MA; Italy, Greece, and Israel.  I would like to travel to the United Kingdom, China, Germany, South Korea, Japan, India, and Australia, in particular, and really most other world locations to work.  

My Favorite Products/Objects?

Books, fine arts products (paintings, music collections, sculpture, fine arts of literature, performance- especially music and dance, high tech devices that have the capability to make life more joyful, healthier and better.

My Current Passions?

Enjoying a nice meal with my family and friends.
