As a Boy Scout, I learned to carve golf balls. A couple of years and several hundred golf balls later I published my first book; The Carving Range-A Guide to Carving Golf Balls. Soon I became the self-proclaimed Worlds Expert in Golf Ball Carving.
Although I thought it was a fun project, I decided the sensible thing to do was climb the corporate ladder so I traded my writing and carving tools for a suit and tie.
Sixteen years later, I was scribbling some mental notes in a journal at a restaurant when a waitress asked if I was an author. To my surprise and hers, I said; “Yes!” It was my first public declaration of what would soon become my new reality. Little did I know that a few short months later I would be without a job and had to find a new star to follow.
I wrestled to know what to do with my life; ultimately selling my home, leaving friends and crossing the proverbial and literal desert to a new state were all part of my journey of discovery. I believe that In Search of the Wise Men and upcoming God is a Maker are gifts from heaven to help inspire a belief in God and the entrepreneurial spirit that built America.
I now spend my days as the Wise Men Maker; writing and encouraging people to follow their star. My evenings are spent carving golf balls and reading the classics to my amazing wife and four children.
