"CONNECT THE DOTS" is a call in radio talk show, where I share my knowledge of the metaphysical, plus ongoing conspiracies, plus the evolution of planet earth - spiritual info - et involvement - politics - crystals - etc.

I am also the only singer-songwriter, recording artist to ever run for President of the U.S. (also a 2016 & 2020 write-in candidate).

Yes, I am a 2024 non-political US Presidential candidate! Visit my cell phone friendly site: and watch the 1.5 minute Presidential Videos especially the "political humor" and "taking care of everyone".

My ethics: the integrity of my focus for being the next President of the United States is in complete agreement with what is written in MARK 9:35

I am the author of Connect The Dots Theory, one of the most mind enlightening books, specifically designed to educate the general public about our multi-dimensional reality. Google it, and read the first 40 pages free. Available at GooglePlay, iTunes, Barnes, and Nobles, etc.

This show will be an opportunity for concerned people to gather and connect!
