I've been programming computers since the mid 1970's, teaching Aikido since the mid 1980's, and practicing bodywork since the mid 1990's. In the past I have been a theatre lighting designer, a shiatsu instructor, stress management instructor, hypnotherapist, carpenter, and a dancer in a belly dance troupe.
I am an avid reader and read everything, mostly fantasy, science fiction, mysteries, math, science, philosophy & technical material.
I enjoy theatre, museums, cooking, eating, hiking, camping, swimming. In the past I have enjoying biking, cross country skiing, sailing, canoeing, and rock climbing, but have not done any for awhile. I have a motorcycle license, but have not ridden in many years. I love to sing, but people do not enjoy hearing me. I am teaching myself to draw, and to play the harmonica and the dumbek. I plan to learn scuba diving.
I am an eagle scout and a black belt.
