Man's Search for Meaning.

I'm in the business of moving & inspiring people with meaning.

THIS SITE IS inspired by psychologist Viktor E. Frankl's 1946 book of the same title. He identifies having a purpose in life as key to his survival as a WWII concentration camp inmate.

Frankl's message resonates deeply for me because the contemporary man seeking self-actualization is identifying a similar purpose in life to survive in a world of mind-numbing materialism.

My purpose in life is the pursuit of Meaning.

MEANING defines my art, my calling & my life's work.
