What do you do?

I think small, experience taught me that from there bigger ideas emerge.


I act from within my nature and try not to fight with that feeling. A river flows naturally, carves it's path yet still changes, life can and does emulate this nature. Do not go it alone, connect with God.

What should we read?

St Paul’s letters. And my upcoming book - Shortcuts on a Long Road
