I received my M.D. (cum laude) and M.Sc. (in Biophysics) from the University of Western Ontario in Canada, and became a board-certified specialist in Aerospace Medicine in the United States. Eventually I turned back to my second career choice, Christian ministry, and received my M.Div. from the Chicago Theological Seminary and then my D.Min. and Ph.D. from the Graduate Theological Foundation. I have had a life-long interest in spiritual healing, which for the past 15 years has included personal study of the healing ministry of the Brazilian Spiritist healer, John of God. Currently I preach, lecture and write on and provide support for spiritual healing.
