Hi! While my formal training is in computer science, I have had a longtime interest in the "paranormal." I kicked off my official entry into parapsychology in 2000 when I started investigating reports of hauntings around the San Francisco Bay area.
In 2005 I completed the Rhine Research Center's Summer Study Program in parapsychology.
In 2008 I cofounded, with my wife and research partner, Julie Beischel, PhD, the Windbridge Institute, where we currently work to normalize, optimize, and utilize psi. Our focus is on basic and applied parapsychological research within the areas of Mindfulness, Creativity, Intuition, Synchronicity, and Intention.
In 2017, Julie and I reorganized the Institute and founded the Windbridge Research Center, a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to ease suffering around dying, death, and what comes next by performing rigorous scientific research and sharing the results and other free, open-access educational materials. The Center also publishes a free, open-access, peer-reviewed journal, Threshold: Journal of Interdisciplinary Consciousness Studies (TJICS). I am currently the Center's Executive Director and the Managing Editor of TJICS.
In 2019 I launched the Parapsychology and Psi Hacking Project, a local and online community effort to connect makers, artists, tech hackers, citizen scientists, seekers, entrepreneurs, etc., to the body of parapsychological research in an attempt to encourage the development of new tools, technologies, and experiences.
Today, I split my time between those three organizations. I recently had the pleasure of teaching classes (Art Through Psi and Intro to Parapsychology) at the Rhine Education Center. I'm currently a Professional Member of the Parapsychological Association and a Full Member of the Society for Scientific Exploration. My book Visualizing Intention: Art Informed by Science can be downloaded for free through Institute's website.
