Early life

Born in Long Beach, California and raised in Columbus, Nebraska, he was an aspiring studio musician and recording artist in the 1970s, releasing two singles and an album, Charley D. and Milo, on the Epic Records label.

He is married to his high school sweetheart, Constance Jean Duquette. They live in Costa Mesa, California and have one son, Jean-Paul.[1]

Writings

DuQuette has written several successful books on Western mystical traditions including; Freemasonry, Tarot, Qabalah, ceremonial magic, the Enochian magic of Dr. John Dee, and spirit evocation, Goetia. He is perhaps best known for his autobiography, My Life with the Spirits, which is currently a required text for two classes at DePaul University, Chicago.

Many of DuQuette's books have been dedicated to analyzing and exploring the works of Aleister Crowley (1875–1947), an English occultist, author, poet and philosopher.

DuQuette occasionally appears on radio and television as a guest expert on subjects involving the occult.

He is on the faculty of the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies[2] in Rhinebeck, New York where he teaches The Western Magical Tradition.

Ordo Templi Orientis

Since 1975 he has been a National and International governing officer of Ordo Templi Orientis, a religious and fraternal organization founded in the early part of the 20th century. Since 1996 he has been O.T.O.'s United States Deputy Grand Master.[3] He is also an Archbishop of Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica, the ecclesiastical arm of O.T.O.
