My life passion is Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. Martial arts can teach one many things about life. I also enjoy writing both novels and screenplays, camping, hunting, archery and firearms, fishing, hiking, and paintball. Many years ago, I obtained my private pilots license and enjoyed flying until it became too restrictive and expensive.
The Book of Five Rings
The Art of War
The Gift of Fear
I enjoy good actions movies, sci-fi, horror, and comedy. I also enjoy those sappy romantic movies as well when accompanied by my wonderful wife.
My taste in music varies. I do enjoy listening to big band jazz while smoking a cigar and sipping scotch. Depending on my mood, the environment, and situation, I enjoy most everything from Dub-step to classical.
