OTHER INTERESTS:

Painting portraits, landscapes, seascapes, and still lives, in oil paint on canvass is my passion in my spare time; my life’s work is also my passion; facilitating the transformation of other souls is divine. I also enjoy the Practice of Raja Yoga, since the age of 17, which is an intense practice (from Vedanta), which includes daily Meditation, Hatha Yoga, and philosophically adhering to and living according to the Yamas and Niyamas, as well as the Yoga Sutras. I also love jogging by the sea, and spending time with the people I care about.
