Title Sensei
Organization Greater Boston Zen Center


My home zendo is Greater Boston Zen Center. I'm also a teacher at Great Plains Zen Center. I received full transmission in the Taizan Maezumi lineage from Susan Myoyu Andersen, Roshi in 2023, and before that, denkai transmission from Kate Hartland in 2021. I’ve practiced Zen since about 2003. I'm a retired university professor with two grown children and two grandchildren. I am particularly interested in keeping Zen practice from causing harm.
