I enjoy indoor climbing at the Upper Limits rock gym in St. Louis.

When I make the time for it, I greatly enjoy fly fishing, especially during Missouri's winter catch-and-release season. I also enjoy fly tying, thanks to the good folks at Feather-Craft Fly Fishing in St. Louis, who taught me. The following may be the most apt description of the current state of fly fishing (and much of the modern world) that I've seen:

"And fly fishermen, now more skilled and knowledgeable than they've ever been, seldom keep any of the fish they go to such pains to catch. [...] We decided we were frontier subsistence journalists, living off the land in one of the few ways that's still possible, that is by gathering food, putting most of it back, and then writing about it for money."

-- John Gierach, "Spring Snow", from Even Brook Trout Get The Blues.

I have studied and taught shin-shin toitsu-do (mind and body unification) and shin-shin toitsu aikido (aikido with mind and body unified) at the St. Louis Ki Society.
