I'm a life-long student of the spirit and all things esoteric. As an animist & biocentrist, I've always felt most at peace in nature and do what I can to protect the land, sea, and air, along with the beings that live within those realms. I volunteer with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) and have volunteered previously as a naturalist. I've studied many years in Tibetan  Buddhism which I also teach to inmates through the Liberation Prison Project (LPP), with the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD), and have been involved within the Covenant of Hekate in several roles since 2012. I'm deeply involved in studying the history and teachings within the study of the occult {occult meaning secret or hidden teachings}, particularly theurgy and hermeticism through many different platforms & teachers. I am a student of the Builders of the Adytum (B.O.T.A) who focus on tarot and the Qabalah, am intrigued by Enochian magic, and am fascinated by the folk magic of various cultures such as that of the Pennsylvania Dutch , (called braucherei or Pow-wow), along with the faith & beliefs of the Slavic peoples where I share much of my ancestry.
