I began helping others improve their memories as a teenager in 1962. I have spent the succeeding fifty years developing and refining his applied philosophical approach to human development.
My development of SORTing™ in 1975 introduced a robust set of techniques lay individuals could use to release life-times of previously unresolved stress, and greatly increase their understanding and self-awareness.
In 1976 I turned his attention to the world of business, integrating memory training with a strategic approach to planning and management for numerous businesses.
In the 1990’s I adapted his work in applied philosophy to found The Principles of Engagement, a Martial Arts system.
I was awarded the rank of Grandmaster of Martial Arts Philosophy and trained numerous Regional, National and World Champions, including Andrew Gainer, a 3-time world champion in full contact freestyle competition.
My award-winning cable television series, The Warrior-Philosopher, ran for fifteen years and reached tens of thousands of people seeking ways to improve their lives. I have been a prolific innovator/educator, providing people with tools to relieve stress and fulfill their potential.
Today my work has culminated in Re-Minding™, a truly extraordinary personal skill that allows people to quickly free themselves from unwanted thoughts and feelings and release their natural creativity and energy. It is a major therapeutic breakthrough in memory management and personal freedom.

Re-Mind Yourself: Better Memory Lower Stress
I began coaching people in memory training in 1962, starting with fellow students at college. Over the years, I noticed a uniform improvement in their moods while using memory techniques-the natural result of having acquired a valuable, new personal skill, I thought, until an uncomfortable situation compelled me to look farther.
One day in the 1970’s, I was overwhelmed by too many things to do, which was both bothering and distracting me. An annoying accumulation of tasks had been nagging at me and demanding attention. I had so many things on my mind that it was hard to concentrate on any one of them.
It was my practice to use written lists to keep track of all I had to do, which made things more manageable. However, while I was driving, I couldn’t write a to-do list without risking an accident, so I tried memorizing a list of every task that had accumulated.
There I was driving down the road, memorizing my to-do list, and to my surprise, the more I memorized, the better I felt. When I was done, I no longer felt overwhelmed or bothered. In fact, I felt great! That was very different from how I had been feeling.
Not only did I have a very handy to-do list in my memory, I also perceived the tasks differently. This may be the most important aspect of Re-Minding: it changes the way you perceive and experience the world around and within you.
