Trey was born in Asheville, North Carolina, and still lives in the nearby area. He attended college at Western Carolina University, earning several masters degrees in business. He started a web site development company at the age of 18 and spent some time as a business consultant. He eventually found himself running the family business, an academic conferencing and publishing company.
When Trey was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2004 at the age of 31, he started trying to make sense of a world that he thought he already knew. His research took him well beyond the realm of business to a study of science and medicine, including everything from biology to physics to alternative healing practices.
Looking to fill in the gaps in what these subjects were missing, he began studying various religions, shamanism, metaphysics, spirituality, meditation, and eventually discovered non-duality and the idea of enlightenment. He then realized that self-realization was what he had been seeking all along. He began blogging about his awakening experiences and how the teachings of non-duality were positively impacting his state of being. His writings would eventually become his first book, "A Seeker's Guide to Inner Peace: Notes to Self."
Trey is the co-founder of the Asheville Sangha online community (http://www.AshevilleSangha.com), which was developed for people interested in non-duality, self-realization, meditation, enlightenment, etc. He also facilitates Awakening Support Group meetings in the Asheville area. Trey invites contact and exchange with any reader who feels a draw or a need. You can reach him, and follow his current writings through his on-going blog or Facebook.
