Was first introduced to Reich’s work as a university student in the early sixties. At that time he underwent therapy with an orgone therapist trained by Reich himself. His interest in Reich was rekindled in 2004 and since then he has spoken about aspects of Reich’s work in many events worldwide. He has published a number of articles in peer-review academic journals on aspects of Reich’s life. His main focus is on Reich’s social and political thought and activities, and he is currently working on a book entitled From Communism to Work-Democracy: the Development of Wilhelm Reich’s Social and Political Thought.
