I teach people how to love themselves. I believe that life is a school of self-love and wisdom. The goodness we bring into the world brings us self-love, and wisdom is simply the result of making mistakes and rectifying them. I have a B.A. degree in English from the University of Southern California. An M.A. in Education from Cal-State L.A., and an M.A. in English with an emphasis in Linguistic from San Francisco State.

I have taught English, English as a Second Language, drama and dance. I speak some French, Hebrew, Dutch and Spanish from having lived five years abroad. I live in San Francisco. My linguistic research has been published in Great Britain with Cambridge University Press. And my groundbreaking study of gay metaphoric speech has been a topic of academic interest worldwide, including Denmark and Taiwan. In the United States I am a published author and lecturer on topics of self-love.

For the past few years I’ve focused my attention on the Abrahamic faiths. I’ve written a book on the Hebrew Scripture {Tanach/the Old Testament}, the Christian Scripture {The New Testament} and the Quran {The Islamic Holy Book}. If there is a God, then there can only be one God. And if there’s only one God, then all three Scriptures must reflect His message, not only one. Therefore it behooves us to look more deeply than we have at a personal awakening to God’s presence. In this regard, I’ve done groundbreaking work in figurative speech, specifically metaphors, symbols and similes. I call this study, “Spiritual Linguistics.”
