My Story

The infantry is a training ground that leaves an impression on mind, body and soul. I did my 4 years, but I never left it behind completely.

Physically I sought out other ways to experience that again, through reenactment in various forms, and ended up teaching the German long sword of Joachim Meyer in parks in LA (Tuesday and Wednesday if interested).

Mentally I sought out training in team leadership and corporate management, rising through the ranks over 15 years working for The Corporation. Mastering stress management, team morale and business mission guided my every thought, and I trained my mind with some of the best managerial resources available from Harvard and UCLA, and now coach executives and mentor managers, driving vision and creating results.

Spiritually, I found emotion to be the key to my path. I sought inward and dug so deep into the self that I fell out into the universe. I have learned to ride the maelstrom and found my gods along the way.

These have created an eclectic collection of strange and sundry disciplines. German swordsmanship, Viking faith, Corporate strategy and emotional intelligence (even Japanese tea ceremony) all blend into an amalgam of disparate insights weaving the tapestry that is a life lived more than 40 years, ambitiously, dedicated, with passion at the fore. Now I seek another way of being, a source of strength that is in my control and is grounded. This is where we begin to do so.

Loyalty, Duty, Integrity, Respect, Personal Courage, Selfless Service, these are what make up Honor. When I was younger they were just words, but now at 43, I know what they actually mean, and they are more valuable to me now than they ever were then. No mission too difficult; no sacrifice too great. Duty first!
