Steve Strickland

Founder and Promotor

Steve was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Beloit College with a BA degree in Philosophy. A lifelong love of the metaphysical led him to create Body Mind Spirit Expos in the mid 1980's. These days he plans out the overall direction of the company and often manages individual expos. Away from work you will find him researching "new science topics" or playing yet another computer role playing game.
