Originally from South Carolina, I’m a true southern gentleman now living in North Carolina where my family helped settle in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Appalachia region. Historically the roots of my family tree are of Scottish and French Huguenot decent, so it’s not much of a surprise that although I was raised Southern Baptist, I eventually found my way to Celtic Wicca and Druidism. Truthfully though, the mysticism and the mysteries of folk conjure in the Mountains has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

Let me tell you a story. You see, when I was very young my face was burned by boiling water in a kitchen accident and my mother – understandably alarmed – didn’t know what to do. She called up her mother and grandmother and was told to take me to an old woman on the “Mill Hill” in the next town over and that she would “talk the fire out.” My mother scooped me up and quickly rushed me there. Once we arrived the woman prayed for a few minutes, made a few hand gestures, and blew on my face. Suddenly the pain was gone and – to this day – never scarred, no trace can be found. Even to my young self the power of the magic performed that day was evident, and I credit this experience for starting my spiritual journey and bringing me to where I am today. The experience of having my face miraculously healed at a very young age by a complete stranger engrained in me the driving force of my spiritual work – helping others.

Later, in my early teen years and after making some “alternative” friends at school, I was told of a nearby shop called “Dragon’s Treasure.” My mother – initially with reluctance – took me to see it for myself. This store is what shaped my spirituality till my early 20’s. That journey started with learning Tarot and reading for family, friends…and my local cosmetologist. After predicting my hairdresser’s pregnancy and the gender of her baby at the age of 14, she paid me and my life as a professional reader began.

Along the way I was introduced to the many energy healing modalities and became an avid and apt pupil of the various forms it took. Adding to my mission of helping others I became a Reiki master, a healing practice which seemed very similar to my earlier, youthful, experience. To complement my energy healing abilities I intensified my studies, enhancing my holistic healing capabilities and completing the coursework to become a licensed Massage & Bodywork therapist and Certified Professional Aromatherapist.  

You know the saying ‘when the student is ready the teacher will appear?’ Dragon’s Treasure also introduced me to one of my most valued mentors, Savage Blackwolf, who initiated me into a linage of The Caledonii Grande Tradition of Celtic Wicca and Druidism. This further opened the world to me, setting me on the path to uncover and understand my ancestry and the folk methods and magic used through the generations. Ultimately this exploration of my roots led me to Hoodoo – a natural, complementary broadening of my abilities and practices in which I am an adept and proficient practitioner – and becoming a graduate of Catherine Yronwode’s Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course.

As my clients know, I’m a non-judgmental and discreet reader and worker. It’s not my place to judge you or your situation. Although anyone can come to me for anything, I will not take unjustified (mundane and theological) curse work. For the most part in my works I try to follow the approach of “harm none,” however I fully realize and accept that at times “the best defense is a good offence.” 

For prospective and current clients, all workings require a reading before any work is to commence. This is to ensure the best possible outcome of works done by clarifying intentions, better defining the situation, and examining what forces may be presence that would influence the outcome. Depending on the type of work or reading being performed the very basic information required would be the petitioner’s current/full name, their date of birth, and the specific question/petition being presented. Other works or readings my require additional information for divinatory purposes, such as birth name, birth time, photos, and/or an address. As each work or reading is as individual and unique as the client specific requirements will be discussed upon meeting. Currently, depending on complexity of the situation, meetings are being held by phone, using text-based services (Messenger, SMS, etc.) as well as video-based services (Skype, Zoom, etc.). While appointment times fill quickly, I will work with you to find a date and time that fits with your schedule and the immediacy of the situation as required if currently available options are unable to support your request.
