Hi, I’m John.

It’s always been hard for me to talk about myself because I never know what to say.

I’ve done a lot of things and covered a lot of ground.

Mostly I’ve been a lawyer, but a spiritual “awakening” triggered by a past life epiphany caused me to turn to the God within and pray, “Teach me.  Thy will be done.”

I was led to know myself and follow my inner voice.  That led to me to write a book on the spiritual path, and share perspectives on the conflicts infecting our lives and world.

For a more tangible understanding, read on.


I started practicing law in 1977 in Ohio, and later Florida.  It was a varied practice that some would call general, including negligence and wrongful death, wills and trusts, probate, construction and development, real estate, probate, and civil litigation.

Several months in the hospital with pancreatic sepsis, with a long period of recovery, put an end to most of that.   

I also consulted, too,  since 1996, on a whole host of matters, including startups, technology, project development and other issues.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my spiritual calling; it made for an eclectic mix as my focus expanded to see the energies at work in people’s affairs.

And while it didn’t change the nature or scope of my professional services, it did provide for some interesting conversations as discussions of issues and obstacles began to involve inner factors and their relationship to the outer ones in which we were involved.

It led me to write a book about the spiritual path and the inner voice that filled us with discontent and offered context for the experiences of our lives (see my website WhisperZone.org, as well as my book, Whispers in the Silence — Living by the Light of Your Soul).

And from there, into service of others by holding out a path to peace through applied spirituality (you can read more at PeaceOptions.com), and how to answer our inner call to serve by turning our visions into missions that make a difference (MissionLaunch.com).

So much of my focus was on helping these budding entrepreneurs breathe life into their visions and inspirations, and help them overcome the things in their way.

So what to make of all this seemingly-unrelated background?

Just know that I see things another way, and use it to cut to the heart of the matter and focus on what’s really going on.

If you’ve got a problem, I probably can help.
