An Introduction

Take a look.  The same can also be found in the About page.

While Will has always known that writing and the exploration of the human condition would be his “end game,” he has sought out varied professional and educational experiences—resulting in a unique view of our contemporary collective circumstance.  He grew up in a conservative military family and attended the University of Colorado in Boulder. 

While at CU, Will discovered Eastern philosophy, notably Zen Buddhism and Taoism.  He chose to obtain a degree in Economics for uniquely personal reasons—viewing the swings and fluctuations of a free-market economy seeking balance as an expression of “the Way” of natural autonomous systems, or more largely, the “Tao.”  He worked in commercial real estate and in finance before making a professional shift toward government.  Will served as both a sheriff’s deputy and police officer outside of Denver for six years.  As an officer he saw evidence daily of a nascent personal thesis—the necessity for modern American society to embrace fully the concept of deep personal responsibility, with larger implications for the future of humanity and the natural world. 

Will is a strong supporter of an expanded exploration of space and believes that the perspective gained by simply looking up can change the world.  Moving up and out while gazing honestly within—toward these pursuits will we encounter our potential.  Will lives in Colorado with his two dogs, Taurus and Sterling.


Will Burcher is a former police officer and current author of “The GAIAD,” a story of ancient secrets not quite forgotten and the positive power of global perspective. He lives and works in Colorado, USA.

One thought on “An Introduction

  1. The vivid imagery of “The Fall” kept me on the edge of my seat. When I finished the story I wished there was more to read! I am looking forward to this author’s book; definitely on my must read list when it comes out in Autumn.
