Ron was born in Sydney, Australia. He holds degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws from the University of Sydney.
In 1970 he established a general law practice in Gosford on the Central Coast of New South Wales.
In the mid-1990’s he became interested in examining, through the eyes of science, unusual happenings associated with Catholic Faith. His documentaries became the inspiration for the prime time television special, “Signs From God – Science Tests Faith” that was produced by senior Australian journalist Michael Willesee and broadcast in 1999 worldwide by the Fox network.
Ron’s journey of investigation was published in 2007 in his book, “Reason to Believe – A Personal Story”. Since 1995 he has worked on cases relating to “the blood of Christ”. This has included a case of a statue of Christ in Bolivia that is believed to have wept and bled and cases of Communion hosts which appear to have transformed to flesh and blood in recent times.
The most significant case of a transformed Communion host is the 1996 case in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Ron took a leading role in the research and the engagement of scientists to examine that case.
Ron documented on film the whole process of his investigation as it was happening and his unique recordings of events, journey of investigation and interviews with scientists over many years, enable viewers of his documentaries to be privy to the unfolding of possibly some of the most significant happenings in modern times.
Ron published an account of his research on these cases and of his view of their implications for Science and Religion in the book that he co-wrote with Lee Han under the title, “UNSEEN – New Evidence – the origin of life under the microscope”.
The new scientific findings that Ron has presented in his publications have resulted in him challenging conventional theories on the Origin and Evolution of Life.
His novel argument together with accompanying evidence was first outlined and sent to Pope Benedict XVI and geneticist Francis Collins, director of the Human Genome Project, on 11 November 2009.
