About Me

Medical - My father was a fireman and my mother was a nurse, so I grew up in an environment of safety preparedness and medical knowledge and terminology. Four of my favorite plastic models as a kid were The Visible Man, The Visible Woman, The Visible Head and The Heart (life size), all anatomically accurate and could be taken apart. By age 12, I knew the human body pretty well. My science project in 6th grade was a dog skeleton, mounted on a display board. I'd found bones in an empty lot near my home, cleaned them up and learned how they fit together by studying animal skeletons in books. A human skeleton is remarkably similar.

I took Red Cross First Aid training in my early 20's, first Basic, then Advanced and finally Instructor, and began teaching First Aid classes for the Red Cross. I inquired about further training but was told that the Red Cross offered none. I could, however, take EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) training at a hospital, which I did and was certified. I then began working for a private ambulance company and got plenty of hands-on experience in rescue and first aid, including CPR.

Disaster Relief - I was chosen by an international relief organization to participate with a team of volunteers in the relief work in Nicaragua, after the devastating earthquake in December, 1972. We worked there for six months. Back in the US, I was appointed National Disaster Relief Coordinator for this organization for North America. I trained volunteers, gave workshops on disaster relief, prepared first aid and survival kits for the team and went to several disasters in the US, coordinated by the Red Cross.

I was sent to Guatemala in 1976 to train volunteers and was present during the 8.6, 45-second earthquake which hit many parts of the country that year, including Guatemala City where I was. I created and supplied nine refugee camps, trained volunteers to staff them, organized and performed medical clinics and was in charge of field operations for the six months we were involved there.

Other disaster relief I participated in: Honduras (flood), La Paz, Mexico (flood), US (flood)

I created the Center for Ecology and Alternative Technology on the island of Cyprus (1990-1996) and worked on it for about six years. It demonstrated techniques in organic food production, alternative (solar-thermal) power, low-cost architecture, rainwater harvesting and graywater use, underground air conditioning and other sustainable technologies.

I am currently building and stocking an off-grid, sustainable survival retreat of my own design in the Arizona desert (see www.SurvivalRetreatPlans.com). I have been living off the grid in the desert for three years. Update 10/2014 - make that five years.

TEN THINGS
You Can  Do
To    Survive


"This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration!
Our streets will be safer, our Federal Police will be more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!"

Adolph Hitler

Passing of the German Weapons Act in 1935


"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."
John F Kennedy


Americans are
nine times
more likiely to be killed by police than by terrorists.


The supreme law of this land, The Constitution, has not granted power to the federal government to regulate, register or control guns. The Second Amendment specifically states that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. What part of "shall not be infringed" does the government not understand?


Voting for a political party is like choosing the color of the car that is going to run you over.


"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."

George Washington
