I am a native Oregonian who was born and grew up in NE Oregon. The middle child of a family of nine that lived on a ranch and went to a two- room school house through the sixth grade and St. Francis Academy (Catholic School) through high school. Went to a community college for a year and received an appointment to and went to the United States
Military Academy at West Point for two years before resigning. Continued undergraduate and graduate studies until 1972 when I received a General Engineering degree from Oregon State University.

At twenty-eight a dear friend asked me to join her in Quest - a very intense personal growth fellowship. It was a wonderful awakening. I met my wife Carol who also participated in Quest. After 9 years and four jobs working in manufacturing, in March of 1981 I started Serbaco, Inc. in partnership with my father-in-law. As the very much hands-on owner and president for over 36 years, I’ve been grown and blessed with wonderful learning experiences and relationships with the most wonderful people.

I got my Pilot’s license in 1976 and after owning eight different airplanes have flown more than 4000 hours as Pilot In Command and still dearly love to fly. I’ve continued my education mostly in leadership studies, with some study of finance, science, technology and creative writing.

In 1988 Mary Morrissey was giving a talk about the spiritual practice of the 12 steps when 24 months sober from sexual addiction I showed up at my first New Thought service. I’ve been coming ever since and now know that these are the principles, this is the truth about me and all life, and this is the way to be transformed and make the world a better place.
