Victor's bio in his own words: "Structural engineer, turned construction manager, turned inventor, turned business guy, turned investor in the mining industry. I'm a philosopher at heart, interested in how everything happens. One lovely San Francisco daughter. Call Tasmania home. Took refuge in 1992 with Lama Ole, but have been interested in Buddhism way before via the usual esoteric searching of all thinkers of my era."
