David Wayne on the bow of Zeitgeist Ambassador under full sail.

I grew up in western Pennsylvania in a typical baby boomer suburb (I was one of 6 children), graduated college with honors as electrical engineer (BSEE, Pitt 1976), moved to Chicago where I spent most of my adult life, got married and later divorced, and am still a working professional today, in Florida. I am also an ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) Master Certified Technician, an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) licensed amateur extra class radio operator (KZ3MRB) and full FCC commercial technician, comprising GROL (General Radiotelephone Operators License), Radar endorsement, and GMDSS (Global Marine Distress Safety System) operator/maintainer certifications. I am also a PADI (Professional Association of Dive Instructors) Divemaster. With these extra credentials I started up a part time Marine Technician Business, David Wayne Marine Electric LLC.

And oh yes, I love sailing. The boat itself is a vintage 1984 Island Packet 31 model, which I bought used in 2012 and which has been a fixer-upper labor of love ever since.

I had been involved with The Zeitgeist Movement on and off since 2008, when I first saw and grasped the first two films of the now infamous Zeitgeist film trilogy online (at, by artist and filmmaker Peter Joseph. Impressed with both TZM and TVP (The Venus Project of Venus Florida- the early catalyst of TZM), I stepped up and became TZM Illinois state chapter coordinator for two years out of the Chicago area, before relocating to Florida in 2011. I continued to host occasional TZM events with fellow Florida members thereafter in both Orlando and Tampa, such as a booth at Earth Day at Lake Eola Park in 2012. Along the way I also helped out on Linguistic Team International (LTI), an affinity group--also all volunteer--dedicated to transcribing and translating into multiple languages, pertinent TZM and TVP related RBE (Resource Based Economy)-oriented films and video lectures, for free distribution worldwide, to educate peoples of all nations to RBE ideas and understandings. For example, Peter Joseph’s third film ‘Zeitgeist Moving Forward’ has been translated into 29 languages.

I had the TZM graphics work done on the boat in August of 2014. For the complete story, check out the press release at
