I am an independent researcher, writer and lecturer. The opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the organizations of which I am affiliated. If you have a question, please ask me directly. No one speaks for me.

     I am a scientifically oriented UFO and ET contact researcher. My primary focus is both academic and investigative. I have recently completed a comprehensive, multi-year study on Experiencers with Dr. Don C. Donderi. My five professionally published books are available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and fine bookstores. In addition to this I am busy preparing presentations for upcoming conferences where I will share my latest research findings. My new book for experiencers "Extraterrestrial Contact: What to Do When You've Been Abducted" is a comprehensive guide for experiencers, those who love them, and anyone who has an interest in contact with NHI. .

     See "Events" on the menu for a list of my upcoming appearances. I have lectured across the US, and in Brazil, Mexico and the UK. I specialize in ET contact phenomena and the history of government involvement in the investigation of UFOs, their findings, their decision to cover up their findings, and the individuals who took part in the cover-up. My third book with Stanton Friedman, "Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers" is based on years of archival research we accomplished. Stanton and I had a close professional relationship for the last fourteen years of his life. 

     Regarding my work with experiencers, I have assisted Denise Stoner at several of her support groups and led experiencer workshops at MUFON's International Symposia and the IUFOC conference. Some experiencers have been traumatized by their events and will benefit from support services such as a support group, hypnotherapy with a licensed mental health practitioner, or E.M.D.R. therapy, which has been highly successful as a treatment for P.T.S.D. 

     I am a consulting hypnotist in central Florida. I practice the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique and traditional regression hypnosis. (See my QHHT hypnosis page for additional information.)

     If you are seeking support, please visit and complete the "Experiencer Questionnaire." A member of MUFON's Experiencer Research Team will contact you to offer a non-judgmental phone call or to give you a list of support people in your area. If you have tangible evidence of your abduction/contact experience and want to give a statement to MUFON and possibly have your evidence evaluated in a scientific laboratory, please visit and select "Report and UFO or experience". 

     If you are seeking suggestions on how to end your contact experiences, see Chapter 10 in my new book "Extraterrestrial Contact: What to Do When You've Been Abducted."
