| I wake up in
the morning with a dream in my eyes.
|about my life...|
|My life is a intense process, a stream of potentials
unfolding in barely directable fields of enveloped forces. I have spent my life
transversing these streams in an attempt to break though the circuitry of the mundane and
develop creative platforms from which to launch campaigns of delight and liberation; for
myself, my family and friends, my community, my world, my cosmos. Here are a
few ways I express this dream.

|One of the more fun parts of Networking is the chance to see what others are doing and have them see what you are doing. But even more than *seeing* is being. It is not just an information exchange but a living interconnection and chance to see one's place as a microcosm in the macrocosm.|

The Association for the Study of Dreams
brief story of my relationship with dreams goes something like this: I used to work in
adolescent care facilities & institutions with kids that were abandoned, neglected and
abused by - well, just about everyone. At that time I was interested in how fantasy and
creativity (and lack of it) played a role in development but didn't know much about
I began studying with Jungian analysts in San Francisco in the
early 1980's and found that dreams provided not only a wonderful arena for exploring
fantasy and creativity but also provided a soulful feedback system and continual inner
dialogue. After a few years I began studying with other people who worked with dreams in
many other ways and shifted my focus away from pure Jungian dreamwork. I realized when my
wife was in graduate school that her peers who
Our dreamsharing groups on and off the net span the globe. (that is, the dream grassroots movement) Lately I've become more interested in CMC, Computer mediated communications and the spread of dream research and dreamsharing on Internet through the online dream sharing ezine Electric Dreams and the establishment of the DreamGate Project. In 1996 I was part of the Association for the Study of Dreams (ASD) Conference Committee and developed the Computer and Internet Resource and Exhibition Center for the Berkeley Conference, as well as contributing to the development of the ASD presence online and web site, which I now manage for ASD.
I'm especially interested in the egalitarian space of the
Internet and and using DreamGate as a platform to connect dream concerned individuals in
new and exciting ways yet unimagined.

|Work Accomplishments, History and Objectives Resume|
I was born in Marblehead, MA during the threat of a hurricane, but grew up
in the Mid-West and Colorado. My family has been moving west for a long time. We came to
America in from a town near Stonehenge in 1650 and settled as Virginian farmers
along the Rappahanock River. This move west finally landed me in San Francisco, where I
have been living since 1979 with my wife, Patricia.
