I live...

..in sunny San Diego. My home office doubles as the "studio" in which I write and record music and poetry. I play guitar just about enough to enjoy playing it and to write songs. I sometimes peck away at a keyboard to help with my song writing, or use GarageBand/Logic.

Am into fitness..

... daily morning cardio at the gym, and alternate day work-outs are a must! As is a nice long walk at Lake Miramar in the evenings, which is a short ride from where I live.

I read a lot..

... my favorite books are Eknath Easwaran's "Dhammapadda" and Thich Naht Hanh's "The Heart of the Buddha's Teachings" which I return to often.   I love books on quantum physics, with my favorite being  Doubt and Uncertainty by Tony Rothman and George Sudarshan. I also enjoy books on cognitive psychology, and two recent favorites are Richard Wright's "Buddhism is True" (ignore title; it is a book on evolutionary psychology) and David Eagleman's "Incognito". My favorite authors for escapist fiction will always remain P.G. Wodehouse and Agatha Christie, though I do enjoy science fiction. Engrossing non-fiction written without a political agenda is always welcome. 

The media I consume

... is largely music from classic rock to blues. And on the rare occasions time zones and personal time permits, all things cricket. Apart from using LinkedIn for work, I have no interest in social media. 

And I am very serious about my spiritual growth..

.. which to me first and foremost means leading a life of dharma (as defined in the above mentioned two favorite books) in all aspects of my life.  But it also includes a daily practice of yoga in the broad sense of the word, including meditation.
