I have been practicing martial arts for over 30 years (Aikido, Wan Wu Karate, Boxing, Ninjitsu) and I practice for physical, mental, and spiritual well being. I find peace in nature and I try to spend time in it as much as possible.
Ive been exploring spirituality in the last year and have been meditating with a leaning towards zen traditions.
Brotherhood of the Wolf is my favorite movie because of the stunning visuals, amazing martial arts, and the exposure of social control. I find many parallels in the movie to my life a martial arts biologist protecting people from control and manipulation.
I enjoy music in every musical genre from classical, bluegrass, folk, country, rock, alternative, blues, heavy metal, indie, foreign, and pop.
I'm a meat and potatoes kind of guy though I'm a good cook and have tried a variety of cuisine.
