A native of Canada, I originally chose medicine over theology for my career. I received his M.D. (cum laude) and M.Sc. (in biophysics) from the University of Western Ontario, and moved to the United States to join its space program. I became an information analyst at the Lovelace Foundation, writing on medical problems from space operations, and a resident in aerospace medicine at the Ohio State University, enabling me to become a board-certified specialist in aerospace medicine. Thereafter, I held key positions in aviation and preventive medicine in Continental Airlines, Transport Canada, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Eventually, I turned to my second career choice, receiving an M.Div. from the Chicago Theological Seminary and serving in several churches as an intentional interim (transitional) minister. Meanwhile, I advanced my theological education, receiving a D.Min. and a Ph.D. (in theological studies) from the Graduate Theological Foundation. I have had a life-long interest in spiritual healing, which for the past 17 years has included personal study of the work of John of God in spiritual healing. Currently, I preach, lecture, and write on and provide support for spiritual healing. My wife, Christina R. Dougherty, is an energy medicine practitioner. We I live in Valparaiso, Indiana.
