After high school I entered the Society of Jesus during which my major courses of studies were Philosophy and Religion. In a few years I left the Jesuits and finished my studies in Comparative Religions at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Colorado. While my career was in business, I continued to be interested in first century Christianity. A few years ago I became more involved with the Tao Te Ching. Because of all the various translations and interpretations, I did not find one satisfactory. So I wrote and published my own.
