I am retired, having been a writer, teacher, masters-level mental health counselor, and author of the award-winning book The Mindful Hiker.
I’ve also written The Mindful Golfer: How to Lower Your Handicap While Raising Your Consciousness, published by Skyhorse Publishing in New York NY in 2015, a book which is based on this blog.
I am married and my wife and I live in Washington state. My wife Ruth took this picture of me a few years ago when we visited the United Kingdom. I’m standing on hallowed golf grounds: the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland where the game of golf began over 600 years ago.
