He has been closely involved with the NCGR education program from its inception in 1979, serving as Education Director 1998-2002. His first astrology book was written in 1980 and published four years later. He is the author of "The Timing Of Events: Electional Astrology." In 1989 Bruce produced the first credible delineations for the 20 day-signs in Mesoamerican astrology which were published in 1991. In 2001 he began to teach math and science at Kepler College.
