I'm a writer! I specialize in Buddhist topics and my book "Buddhism for Dudes: A Jarhead's Field Guide to Mindfulness" (Wisdom, 2015) is a best-seller. I have a military background and have spent my whole adult life helping and serving others. I also write a blog, Buddhism for Tough Guys, and a column on the Tattooed Buddha website. In addition to writing, I teach Buddhist Sunday School at the Kentucky Meditation Compassionate Peace Center, and volunteer for Hosparus of Louisville, where I tend to dying veterans, mostly. I love to help people get a solid start on a meditation regimen, and teach the Buddha's Wisdom to whomever is interested in learning it. Person-to-person, e-mail, Facebook Messenger, phone, Skype, I even hand-write letters.
