J.W. Bertolotti


Who am I? I’m still figuring that one out, but as for what I do, first and foremost, I’m a father to two great kids and husband to my wonderful wife. I spent much of my adult life in the U.S. Air Force on active duty. After retiring from the military, I founded the Perennial Leader Project to dedicate my efforts to searching for and spreading wisdom for modern life. I enjoy exploring the intersection of wisdom traditions and hope to publish my first book in the coming year.
