Mostly self-taught, Jeff's skills are rooted in wisdom and integrity, and branch out to an air of adaptability.
Writing for 22 years, and editing for over 14, Jeff has spent his life trying to help others via both physical aid and mental counseling while sustaining a connection with nature, empathy, and holding paramount the correction of errors -- whether they be errors of the Self, the Community, or the World. Research into politics, economics, history, religion, education, health, parenting, psychology, science and quantum physics has taken him on a journey to and through many rabbit holes, plucking facts from misinformation on both sides in order to draw objective conclusions others may have overlooked. Despite being difficult to persuade, he believes in being open to shift paradigms in the light of new, and correct, information. After all, as the great Aristotle once said, "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without accepting it."
Jeff strives not for profit, but for sharing pertinence-encrusted information and helping others. He prefers not to collect more than he needs because when that happens in our bodies, we call it cancer. The world has too much cancer, so he's pushing for the healing paths nature provides, for people to use their power rather than give it away, for the benefit of the planet and thus, humankind. Recent first-time parenting experience has amplified that passion.
15 years of photography has helped develop a perspective eye for prospective opportunities, as well as attempting to see beauty in places others may mistake for pain or sorrow. Life can be like photography if we just take a shot, see what comes of it, develop from the negatives, and keep taking shots.
Everything is opportunity, and it's always better to learn to dance in the rain than wait for the storm to pass.
After writing a short story based from a favorite video game in sixth grade, creating a "Dungeons and Dragons" (D&D) role-playing game for the neighborhood kids turned out to be a vector for writing stories that others can relate to enough to envision themselves within. Shifting into poetry and songwriting, empathy further developed into writing letters to pen-pals farther than this writer has ever traveled, and chat room counsel-writing in an attempt to help people navigate their grief or despair. After publishing two books, research into world issues and governments spawned a lot of article and blog-writing, and an accumulation of self-taught search engine optimization (SEO) via trial and error objective research amidst much misinformation.
Without stating the obvious, a fascination with life and nature has obtained mainly outdoor activities, with or without other people. Pouncing into Martial Arts rekindled mirror-ability to reflect within again, refining wise-attention to include the Self -- while having loads of fun! Aided long-term by much memorable Photography, immersion into the perspectives of others grew new roots in Psychology studies. From there, a gained understanding of collective humanity -- including the precious planet and ancient history -- then shifted paradigms and procured a drive to strive to unlearn and relearn history correctly. Inevitably, an interest in correcting errors and an open-ended story of human co-evolution with the planet presently presides.
