He is an author, educator, and international professional speaker (25 countries on 5 continents). He demonstrates how to use authority without coercion so relationships are never adversely affected.
His Without Stress® approach in living, parenting, and disciplining is totally noncoercive—but never permissive. He is the author of a number of landmark and award-winning books.
His approach is transformational—as he shares many commonly used counterproductive and ineffective practices—and then replaces them with more effective ones.
He was a full-time lecturer for over three years at California State University, Los Angeles. and has lectured at numerous universities across the United States and internationally—including China and Malaysia.
He has taught primary and upper grade and every grade 7-12 in a variety of subjects in urban and suburban schools and communities.

His Masters in Business Administration was earned at the same university. He was awarded a Doctorate in Education from the University of Southern California and is one of only a handful of California educators who holds a Standard Administration Credential, which required a doctorate and an academic major.
