Born to a civil engineer mathematician and an accomplished organist, Dr. Venerable has carried on both his parents’ professions as an artist, musician, and teacher of chemistry. He was inspired to enter the profession as a freshman chemistry student at the University of California, Los Angeles, and quickly discovered his ability to get grants during his first years teaching at California Polytechnic State University. Dr. Venerable is a Marquis Who’s Who Industry Expert and the recipient of an Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. He has appeared in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, and Who’s Who in the World.

He returned to UCLA in the Laboratory of Nuclear Medicine for postdoctoral studies, and taught with the Duarte Unified School District for one year. He has since lectured throughout California, not only in chemistry but also in ethnic and in African-American studies. Dr. Venerable served as provost and senior vice president for academic and student affairs at Lincoln University (PA) from 2002 to 2011. He is the author of such books as “Managing in a Five Dimension Economy,” and has honored his mother Thelma L. Venerable as a celebrated organist. Dr. Venerable is also celebrated for his paintings, inspired by the beauty of molecular structure, chemical reactions, and scientific principles.
