I was born in NYC and was brought up in NJ. I went away to a boarding high school in PA and then to Oberlin college, where received my bachelors of arts with a self-designed interdisciplinary major called "The Psychology of Film: How Film & Communication Influence Behavior and Belief." In this time, I produced seven short films in summer film schools at NYU and Northwestern. I received my Masters in Transpersonal Psychology in 2005 and will receive my doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2009. My clinical specialization is with adolescents as I complete my post-doctoral internship towards licensure with incarcerated youth in a juvenile hall. I have experimented with sacred plant medicines and, from these experiences, developed a regular meditation practice.
In a single summer, I worked as a barback, pool cleaner, and banquet waiter. More recently, I've worked as a substitute high school teacher, a high school therapist, an art therapist in an addictions clinic, a teaching assistant, and the Executive Director of a professional association. I am also a certified hypnotist.
Conscious Creativity means...
Conscious Creativity is any creative work done from an awakened state of consciousness -- with a sense of the work's ecology, in content and process, as well as its internal and external influences.
My vision of the future:
A retreat center which is, on one half, a source for cutting edge psychotherapy whose aim is to offer tools for dealing with psychological imbalances by tapping into creative genius and, in so doing, creating an art-production half of the center. The art therapy will serve a means for producing art which, itself, is therapeutic. It's called the Authentic Unifying Center.
I am really good at:
I am a good writer and get along with most anyone with whom I work or collaborate on a shared vision or project. I am committed to excellence and achieving my goals.
I could use help with:
becoming part of a community of artists, creatives, intellectuals, and professionals with whom I can continue to develop and grow as an artist, as a man, as a human in all my work and endeavors.
Tools I use...
I draw upon my intelligence and appreciation for all kinds of artwork (from paintings, to poems, to novels, to music, to photographs, to cinema, to sculpture, and landscapes) to establish rapport and connection with those with whom I live, work, play, and create.
I am looking for (services):
help/support in writing grant proposals to finance creative endeavors whose purpose is to serve, not only as an artistic work, but as a therapeutic effort with verifiable results and effects.
I am offering (services):
According to the CA Board of Psychology, I'm not allowed to offer any services of any kind whatsoever until or unless I am licensed as a psychologist.
