"Paths Less Travelled of a Scholar Warrior (Spy) Teacher Healer,"

The memoir is about my growing up in NYC's Chinatown and how I eventually fulfilled my childhood dream of practicing Chinese medicine. I describe what may seem like several detours along the way, from joining the Marines and fighting in Vietnam, to becoming a CIA officer and running clandestine operations, to studying martial arts and opening a school to pass on what I've learned.

One of the most important lessons I’ve learned on my life journey is the importance of serving others. That’s why I’m so passionate about Chinese medicine, acupuncture and qigong. I believe these so-call alternative healing modalities can provide pathways to help people become stronger, happier and healthier. I hope my book can introduce more and more people to the benefits of these ancient methods of healing, because I truly believe that they contain the keys to modern health.

As a retired U.S. Marine, I’m especially interested in helping veterans who have sustained the wounds of war (whether mentally, emotionally, physically or spiritually) while serving our country. To that end, all proceeds from the sale of my book will go to charities that benefit combat veterans and their families.
