George was born in Yonkers NY and raised in a predominantly Polish neighborhood. His early religious education was under the guidance of the good sisters. As life went on this education hindered his development of what he felt was out there calling him. He was able to feel something around him guiding him in a different direction. However the fear instilled in him by his early teachers stopped him from pursuing this feeling.
Twelve years ago, after much research, George realized his early religious instructors left out many important facts about early Christian roots. This was not to be misleading, but guided by the same fear he had felt. So, he started a new path and new direction. George believes everyone has a special power or gift within and that we should all work to develop these gifts - each to his or her full potential
George worked for a large corporation for 25 years, then left to work independently. He became a licensed private investigator and pistol instructor and now; the owner of Salem’s Moon.
