American mystic and artist who studied and taught Tarot for over 20 years. He developed an innovative course that brings elements of Tarot, Astrology, Qabalah and the Inner Guide Meditation together in a practical way. As an artist, he does bas relief and pottery design. In addition, he is a nutritionist and the supervisor of the D.O.M.E. kitchen.

David died the morning of 8/06/2002. Secretary of DOME and a lifelong friend and companion of Ed Steinbrecher and Stephen Connors since 1965, the three lived and worked together for the past 30 years. He was part of our family and a co-founder of D.O.M.E. David insisted that a recent surprise diagnosis of a rare form of bone

cancer be kept private until his chemotherapy treatment could be completed. Unfortunately, he declined quickly. His pain and suffering were fortunately brief. He was alert and himself until minutes before his passing. We will

miss him deeply.
