My expertise has always been in communication via writing, music, art and electronic media. I majored in music, history, and philosophy of science at University and then wrote history books. However, I was drawn back to the creative. I have specialized in the arts in electronic media, institutions and my own business. I am drawn to artists, their inspirations and motivations. I also seek out those who address injustice and psychic pain, even suffering.
Having a history of sexual abuse and the consequent desire to eliminate pain through addiction and compensating behaviors etc, I have sought to overcome these problems through psychotherapy, and then psychoanalysis. These analytic theories and systems intrigue me.
I now seek to work as an activist in the field of child sexual abuse and to try to eventually establish a foundation to address the issue globally.
My life has had many twists and turns including a spiritual quest which led me to the late Sathya Sai Baba who is now revered as God by Indians. I follow his motto ‘Love All, Serve All.’
My major interests are current rock and rap music, classical music, literary authors like Julian Barnes and DBC Pierre and anything francophile. The work of film director Lanthimos attracts eg. ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer.’
My favorite quote is from Einstein, ‘Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.’ – Albert Einstein in a Letter to his son Eduard, February 5, 1930.

ACTIVISM: CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE/INCEST
I seek to raise awareness of child abuse on all levels including human trafficking, child exploitation, and child pornography.
I am an advocate for victims of child sexual abuse in particular for those who have suffered inter-familial sexual abuse (incest). As a survivor of incest, I am in a strong position to advocate for the establishment of a national organization to support incest survivors. Survivors of institutional abuse already have a splendid organization to support them. (CLAN). The Foundation I also seek to establish would address the issue of child sexual abuse globally.
(Please refer to FOUNDATION for the aims of such a body).
Initially, I aim to seek support for incest survivors from the general public and also to have an incest survivors rally and register their support for a new organization.
A badge is also being designed which expresses unity for victims of incestual abuse and will be available for sale on this site. All funds raised will be channeled into support for the creation of a national organization.
MOTHERLESS CHILD, FATHERLESS CHILD FOUNDATION
I seek as a survivor of incest to address the issue globally. Please refer to ‘FOUNDATION‘ for further information.
