Loda has been involved with the study and teaching of astrology for 30 years. While a student athlete at Ohio University, Loda became curious about the subject of astrology. A 'chance' meeting with a practicing astrologer in New York City during spring break took him from the curiosity stage to becoming a student in one fell swoop. That fascination with the stellar science has motivated Loda to teach, write, and grow an extensive astrological client list. Loda's achievements include:
- Loda was co-founder, together with Judy Johns, of the Los Angeles-based 'Round Art' astrology group in 2001.
- Loda wrote regularly and extensively on sports and astrology in Aquarius Magazine throughout the 1990s.
- He has lectured extensively on the Saturn cycle and how to use it practically in daily life.
- Loda has been an ongoing lecturer for the San Diego Astrological Society and numerous other astrological groups in the Southern California area since 2001.
- Loda is a member of The American Federation of Astrologers.
- He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business from the University of Phoenix.
Loda currently lives and practices his craft of astrology in San Diego, California.
