Welcome to my virtual office.
I am the founder and First Elder of Cabal Fang Martial Arts, President and Chairman of Cabal Fang Temple, Inc. (a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt, non-profit educational charity), an ordained interfaith minister and a seminarian enrolled in Ekklesia Epignostika in pursuit of Holy Orders with apostolic succession.
Somewhat like a military Chaplain, I keep my personal Christian faith while ministering to all faiths in the martial art of Cabal Fang.
The spiritual focus of Cabal Fang martial arts is not Christian — it is Hermetic and Perennialist. That is to say, it is focused on the common symbols and themes found in all the world’s religions and philosophies since ancient times.
My written works include fiction and non-fiction. My most popular non-fiction works are The Calisthenics Codex and Cabal Fang: Complete Martial Arts Training Manual from Querent to Elder (available as a paperback or ebook). My fiction includes the novels Chatters on the Tide and Ghilan, as well as numerous poems, ‘zines, comic books, and short pieces. My short-story “Sign of the Times” appears in the Fall 2012 issue of the Hulltown 360 Literary Journal.
I have been a martial artist for over thirty years. In 2011 I was awarded the rank of Master by the Combat Martial Arts Practitioners Association. I graduated from the University of Virginia in 1983 with a B.A. in English.
My wife and I are the proud parents of four children and four grandchildren.
