HiC was born in Kansas City, Missouri, into a family of fundamentalist Southern Baptists (I know, I know). Upon graduating high school, he couldn’t wait to escape ... er ... flee ... um ... branch out to explore what the rest of the world had to offer.
And so, he found himself attending university in Jackson, Tennessee, at a small, private Southern Baptist university following a teenage love that just was not destined to be. He was prompted, some might even say divinely guided, to once again escape ... er ... flee ... um ... expand his horizons, heading West to California. There, he graduated from university with two degrees, one in TV/Film, and a second in French.
HiC worked for number of years at a multimedia company that had two aspects, one producing media for corporate clients, and the other doing television and creating shows for channels such as Discovery along with their own reality show, called Coast Guard … think COPS set on the high seas, well, okay, at least set on boats in lakes and bays.
While working there, a fortuitous (dare one say, destined) event occurred. A Tarot reader at a party HiC had planned for the company encouraged him to pursue developing his spiritual and intuitive side. From there, it was as if archangels sang and fairies poured the concrete to open wide the path his life would take.
Two years after that auspicious and fated reading, HiC set off on the adventure of being a professional Tarot reader. This led to him managing a metaphysical store for 10 years, which provided the opportunity to discover and explore a variety of spiritual traditions, studies and related topics … from other forms of divination to crystals to Buddhism to different schools of magic as well as Wicca, Shamanism, energy work, herbs and oils, and more.
Today, HiC says that he has a Buddhist foundation that provides a philosophy for living, while the primary spiritual tradition that he practices is Kemeticism. He continues to offer his services using the Tarot combined with healthy doses of numerology and astrology, a splash of i-Ching, a taste of Feng Shui, and heaping spoonful of magic and ritual, assisting others in crafting what they can to enhance and manifest their lives in the fullest, most beneficial and blessed way possible.
HiC offers the following services in person at The Raven's Wing Magical Co. in Oakland, and from a distance by phone.
