I have been a Zen student/practitioner since 1986
I am the author of The Flatbed Sutra of Louie Wing: The Second Ancestor of Zen in the West. It is a fictional account of a modern day Zen master written in the style of the Sutra of Huineng.
I am a father, husband, merchant marine officer, and first class pilot. I work as a captain for the Washington State Ferries.
