I'm a writer, a graphic designer, a skier, and a 3rd dan in Aikido. I do Bikram yoga as often as I can. Ahhh...the heat. I own and operate a chain saw. I am married with 5 cats, residing in southern Oregon. Occasionally I scuba dive alone in shallow lakes. Small schools of curious trout follow me as I explore the bottom, often pointing out discarded beer cans and plastic bean dip containers for me to stuff into my collecting bag. I like to open the jars of salmon eggs the fisherman have dropped over the sides of their boats and watch the feeding frenzy. I pick up fish hooks whose nylon line has wound them around underwater tree trunks and use sign language to try and teach the trout not to bite them.
