I am an artist, writer, and an independent researcher with interests in post-modern magick (Chaos Magick) and the history of Paganism, magick and occultism; antique European esotercism and spirituality; Religio Romana; and Eastern spirituality (Advaita Vedanta, Dzogchen, Laya Yoga). I have written a bit on my experiences with the medieval grimoire the Arbatel de Magia Veterum here on this blog site. I am the editor of the online journal kult ov kaos and have published my first novel in a series as a Kindle ebook. Excerpts and comments on themes in that first novel La Maga A Story about Sorcerers and Magi are the current topic of this blog. I am a medical writer and editor by profession. When I am not making things, wandering in a nearby woods, or casting spells, I am playing symphonic gongs and occasionally trance dancing.
