Todd began his Science of Mind studies at The Center for Conscious Living, an independent SOM church, in Moorestown, N.J. under the magnificent leadership of Rev. Dr. Carol Lawson. When Todd, his partner Steven and their daughter Maya moved to California, Todd was guidedĀ to VCSL. He fell in love with Rev. Bonnie Rose and became a Licensed Practitioner in 2010. When he's not in the building, Todd is busy producing, performing, and expressing himself as the artist God is in Todd and as Todd.

Jon has always felt blessed to enjoy his 50+ year career as a musician and teacher. He has traveled since '83 as musical director for Paul Anka, played with many international jazz artists, and continues to try to inspire a new generation of young musicians as an artist-in-the-classroom for the Ventura County Office of Education. He and his wife, artist Anne Crosse, happily reside near the church in downtown Ventura.
