As a kid living in Paris I got interested in Eastern philosophy and Pop Art. Then came astrology, which I fought for years until I surrendered to its inescapable and mind-expanding accuracy. I liked baseball as a kid, but now I love to be on the ice or in the ocean, although I am hands down the planet Earth's worst surfer. Grateful to my Mom to have been educated in the finest eastern schools, and Phi Beta Kappa, too. I am also eternally grateful to Doctor Robert J. Langs who guided me through my life-changing study of communicative psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. I've written four books plus book and lyrics for and co-produced five astrological musicals with composer Doug Morton. Besides the website I speak publicly on astrology, and the fate of us all, have given lectures and talks from a bowling alley, an attic you had to climb a ladder in a pantry to get to, to the National Press Club, and Harvard Business School Alumni, and all the way from New Jersey to Bali. I have a big mouth, hot temper, enormous appetites and a personal history to make the Pope faint when he hears my name. Literally. I believe in life on other planets, because of course there are sentient beings everywhere in the Universe. The fact is, some are sweet, some are sexy, others are total jerks, but I love 'em all. I'd go up in a space ship any day of the week, although I prefer roomy business class and some nice, fluffy towels when I get to Planet X. Am I legitimate? That's another story. Most favorite book? The Tibetan Book of the Dead, so that shows you what kind of fun guy I am.
