Meet the Author

Kit McKittrick is the author of The Georgetown Cypher. His career has specialized in blue ocean business strategies with over twenty entrepreneurial start-ups to his credit. Kit has consulted and worked for some of the most well known companies in the world and currently is the Chairman and CEO of Kingston Systems, a micro cap Green publicly traded company. He is a graduate of Georgetown University.

Kit’s interest in religious exploration started as a result of being a confirmed Episcopalian attending a Catholic University. 40 years ago non-Catholics had to take courses in comparative cultures replacing the non elective courses taught in Theology. Georgetown University provides a fabulous backdrop for historical and geographical connections with the U.S. Government.

In the Georgetown Cypher, Kit poses many questions about the relationship of the University to The U. S. Government and more serious ones about an alternate non religious message by Jesus and his followers. Kit has begun work on a series of Thrillers featuring Ian MacAlester and Father Xavier Cortez that explore the many aspects of guided meditation and the tremendous benefits that can be achieved by its practice.

Kit spends his time between New Hampshire and Florida. He has also been a member of numerous business associations over his 35 year career.
