Dateline: Exploring the connection between spirituality and health
I’m a Christian Scientist who likes to follow and write about trends in spirituality and health. I also serve as a media and legislative spokesperson for Christian Science in Northern California.
My work with the media entails keeping in touch with editors, producers, and reporters on various issues that might intersect with the practice of Christian Science including prayer-based health care, spirituality, and the confluence between science and religion. My involvement with the legislature on both the state and federal level relates mostly to the legal accommodation of the practice of Christian Science, especially with regard to health care.
Prior to this I worked for a number of years as a marketing consultant and video producer and as the co-founder of a Silicon Valley start-up company that provided web-based video tools and products to the travel industry.
In addition to my duties as a spokesperson, I also work as a self-employed Christian Science practitioner, available to anyone interested in a prayer-based approach to healing.
And… when I’m not otherwise engaged with one or all of the above, I like to ride my bike, go for hikes with my wife and dog, take in the occasional concert, and listen to baseball games on the radio.
