A Few Autobiographical Words

I graduated from Farmington High School, West Farmington, Ohio, at the age of 16. I worked at a dairy store and then a rubber factory on an assembly line making rubber gaskets for refrigerators. I was organist for First Methodist Church, West Farmington, Ohio – then worked at Johnson Rubber Company in Middlefield, Ohio, working in the accounting office.
I was self-employed after opening Hickox Music Studios in West Farmington, Ohio, managing a studio serving three-counties, hiring two other teachers and personally teaching 60 students a week on piano, organ, accordion, guitar and mandolin. Then I attended Dana School of Music, Youngstown State University, Ohio. I majored in music and was a paid accompanist. I was also a pianist for Donna’s Dance Studio, West Farmington, Ohio.
I became organist for St. John’s Lutheran Church, Warren, Ohio and organist for Geauga Lyric Theater Guild. I made several appearances on Polka Varieties TV show in Cleveland. I was also an organizer of parades, banquets, bicentennial celebrations and fund drives.

Then I moved back to Grand Junction, Colorado where I taught piano, organ, keyboard, accordion, guitar, mandolin and violin in my home and lectured on the Science of Music using Powerpoint presentations and involving live musical performances, skits and audience participation. I wrote and published the book “Cataclysms – A New Look at Earth Changes” through Blue Star Productions/World Books in Phoenix, wrote 77 booklets in the metaphysical field and published them on my web page, http://www.chrysalispub.com and into store on Ebay.

Education, Credentials & Honors

Graduated High School – Farmington High School

Along with music, my career has also included involvement with the arts of painting, writing, dance and theater that led to my writing two musical plays with original music.

Bragging Rights

I have played for many different occasions including some TV appearances. I played the wedding rehearsal dinner music attended by Roy Rogers and Dale Evans for their son Dusty, and have played for movie and TV personalities and the governor of Colorado and finally, the ultimate, I played for the President of the United States.  This was President Ford and the occasion was a Christmas Eve church service at the chapel in Vail, Colorado. I painted a portrait of President Gerald Ford which was presented to him when we were in Vail and which he acknowledged with a personal letter of thanks.

 

Why I Write - The Philosophy Behind the Words

When I began composing, the music and lyrics would flow into my head in complete form. A year later I began to receive information from a spiritual source that flowed in the same way as the music. This material is the Chrysalis Teachings that The New Millennium NoteBooks are based on.

Indispensable Artistic Influences

I had private music instruction with a number of outstanding artists. One of my piano teachers was fourth in a descending line from Franz List, one teacher was a student of Tobias Matthay and another was a student of Arthur Rubenstein.

My Favorite Books - And Why!

“America Before” by Graham Hancock – It tells of an ancient lost civilization.

“Underworld” by Graham Hancock – It shows proof of ancient civilizations underwater now.

“Hidden Proof – Forbidden Knowledge” by Dr. Steven Greer – It tells of the secrets the government has been hiding from us for years.

“Unacknowledged: by Dr. Steven Greer – It tells that we have been visited by extraterrestrials for thousands of years.

My Writing Style

I sit down at the computer – type in a question about something I am interested in and immediately start typing an answer that I hear in my head as thoughts.

My Writing Process

When I started writing I had many papers of different knowledge. My biggest problem was sorting these ideas on paper out into several different categories. Then I sorted them down from there into smaller groups of similar subject matter which led to the formation of separate books on different subjects.

Getting Published!

My first 2 books, “Truths of Man’s Divine Heritage – Books I & II were published in Colorado with help from a group of friends in 1985.

My next book “Cataclysms?? A NEW Look at Earth Changes was published by Blue Star Productions in Phoenix, AZ in 1996.

The next 4 books were published in 2008 by booklocker.com.

I self-published the rest through Create Space and Kindle Direct Publishing from 2009 to present.

What are you working to accomplish by being on Storiad?

I want to get this material out to the world. The Chrysalis Teachings are guidelines leading into the new society. They will help in all areas of restructuring behavior and give day to day help for each. No church will be involved. The Chrysalis Teachings will stand alone on the basis of their integrity as the common-sense replacement for past authority figures. The purpose of The Chrysalis Teachings is to explain things in simple language and terms, and show misinterpreted teachings. They give a compressed view of creation and evolution to help you gain a total look at the human experience and to open your mind as to other forms of life on other planets. We are not alone, have never been alone, only in our own minds.

Works In-Progress

The Almighty Organ “ALL” as an animated film

A Documentary called The TimeTraveler’s Story of Mankind

I have a series of Chrysalis Teachings – 34 videos about 15 minutes each on Vimeo
