Our current ventures are touching the world with hope.  We have begun a movement to help sincere men and women start genuine relationships and lasting marriages.  In addition, we're helping to care for the orphans in Ukraine.  We're producing training programs that are changing lives.  But it all started with a string of events and experiences that I would not have imagined would come together as they have.

  • At age 25 I created a time management course and sold tickets to participants for $25 each.
  • At age 28 I won the Toastmasters' comedy completion for the state of California and learned the value of humor.
  • At 32 I began to lead and teach small men's study groups.  This grew into a counseling and coaching ministry.
  • At 39 I went through a personal depression and fought through it.  My spouse had passed away.
  • At 40 I wrote my first book on personal development and began traveling to numerous countries.
  • At 42 I met my wife Anna in Ukraine and we married a year later.
  • At 44 the economy crashed and we lost everything material, but learned what real love was about.
  • At 45 I wrote my book on International Dating and Anna and I appeared on The TODAY Show, Dr. Phil, and more.
  • At 46 I formed True North Pictures and worked on Paramount to look for film funding for inspirations movie projects.
  • At 47 we started the matchmaking company that today is Dream Connections.
  • In 2016 we will be the centerpiece of a TV series to air in Australia and the UK - I will publish my book on creating oneness -  and we will have expanded to include live seminar training.


Career Path

In 1983 began a 12-year career in commercial print sales for large printing companies that specialized in marketing materials for major companies in Silicon Valley. I worked as an architectural rep for building products that created themed environments such as Sega GameWorks and the New York, NY Hotel Casino. In 1998 I began a computer leasing company in California that focused on the Native American tribes.  It grew to $5.5 million before the economic crash of 2008. My next venture was to launch True North Pictures.  I was endorsed by leadership guru John Maxwell and met many wonderful people in the time I worked on the lot at Paramount Studios. In January of 2011 Anna and I formed European Dream Connections, which subsequently became in 2012.  This international matchmaking company has grown exponentially every year since. We created the 501(c)3 non-profit company, Abundance International, to provide support for the orphans in Ukraine.
