Jost van Dyke considers himself a Multidimensional Renaissance HuMan. This multidimensional indentification is typified by three pivotal events at an early age that set in motion an underpinning dynamic. Before Jost's birth, his parents had a “close encounter” experience that was quite extraordinary for two people raised and living at the time in rural North Florida amidst Deep South fundamentalism of the 1950s. Subsequently, Jost was born Easter morning, at the break of dawn with a natal sun conjunct an 11:11 Aries ascendant/Libra descendant axis. At the age of five, Jost had an out of body experience (OBE), an angelic visitation that set a precedence for recurring numinous events that have since made a significant impact on his life in many ways. In addition to being an accomplished concert pianist, Jost has pursued many creative, professional venues. Among these include acting as musical theatre director at Florida State University School of Theatre, vocal coach/accompanist, music editor for Bourne/International Music Publishers and international copyright correspondent for MCA/Universal, Inc., Artist in Residence at Marymount Manhattan College, fine-dining restaurant manager, a chef and food columnist, a large-scale events coordinator, a nationally-exhibited fine art photographer with photographs housed in private and gallery collections around the country, a photo-journalist, and most recently a Pilates instructor.
