I study and teach Aikido and Iaido (there is a detailed bio about my experience on Houston San Shin Kai). I also started learning piano in 2005. My formal background all the way to doctorate level was studying at some of the top Science Research Universities in the world. A National Science Foundation awardee and National Institutes of Health awardee, I’ve published research in multiple fields including biochemisty and biophysics. I’ve also taught science at the college level.
