About

What I have been about is well documented in my autobiography Getting a Life.

In summary:

During the first 40 years of my life, I laser-beamed all my energies into becoming an architect and establishing a practice.

As the practice developed over the next 21 years, so my own interests expanded to broader horizons. In particular, Goethe’s understanding that Architecture is frozen music led me research and discover that when the design, geometry and structure of a building are based on the fundamental principles of harmonic ratio keys and proportional volumes in music, it will resonate with the same harmonic ratios in our body to create a life-enhancing environment.

Again, when I first opened a deck of Tarot cards, somehow I knew the strange, enigmatic characters and numbers had profound insights to impart in a symbolic language. (It was never intended to be used as a fairground amusement for fortune telling.)

My curiosity began a quest to decipher the Tarot’s encoded symbolism. It teaches us about the human psyche and the full spectrum of human nature that mark the mile stones on our journey in life from naivety to self-knowledge and wisdom.

There were several other explorations that triggered an instinctive understanding that could be summed up by Joseph Campbell when he said: the real killer in life is when you find yourself at the top of the ladder and realise it is leaning against the wrong wall!

In 1984 I left the practice.

Since then, apart from earning a living as an independent consultant, my other professional work, seminars and writings have been my concerns that we have ignored the esoteric teachings of architecture, the wisdom and meaning of the Tarot and our common bond with life, health and the natural World about us.

What I have been about has been devoted to restoring these perennial values and draw together these seemingly unrelated strands.
