Rod has been interested in the power of Sound since working as a Roadie and Stage Technician for the World-Renowned Art Ensemble of Chicago as a young man in the early 80's. Rod has also spent time throughout the years playing bass guitar and creating music with various musicians in his hometown of St. Louis, Mo.
"I witnessed The Art Ensemble of Chicago shower people with sound before the term Sound Bath or Sound Meditation even became a thing."
It was in seeing how the audiences were moved and shifted during the various points of a performance that really started Rod on the long path of becoming a Sound Therapist.
Rod has done individual and group facilitation since 1997 starting with his own initiation into Mankind Project's New Warrior Training Adventure. During this time, Rod was trained in deep emotional work that leads to added clarity and balance. That experience is now integrated with Sound Therapy when necessary.
Having also worked in the world of technology and achieving Master Inventor status, Rod combines the Spiritual, Scientific and practical aspects of Sound and Vibrations to assist individuals and groups into states of wellbeing.
As a Certified Sound Therapist, Rod has studied with some of the leading experts in the field through Globe Institute in San Francisco, California.
