I am a journalist and researcher by trade (graduate, University of Iowa Department of Mass Communications, '69), fairly prolific author (Crisis Investing and Entrepreneuring--2009, Moving to Small Town America, Home Dreams for Hard Times, People's Guide to Basic Solar Power, Eden Seeker's Guide etc). I am working on a memoir, Confessions from Generation Woodstock, which includes never before seen pix from the original festival I took as a photo intern for Newsweek Magazine.
I have published articles and essays in many national and regional journals, and at one time gained nationwide media attention for founding the Greener Pastures Institute, an "urban exit" service. These media included the Wall Street Journal, Good Housekeeping, New York Times, USA Today, Fortune and elsewhere. I have also appeared on nationwide tv and radio in conjunction with my activities.
I have led a very interesting, dynamic and successful life (so far!) and have written, published and lectured on a huge variety of subjects. I am a husband, father, stepfather, grandparent, brother, donor to various causes I believe in, and friend to many.
