Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
Product developer, developer of GuruGrips.com, played college tennis at UCLA, played mini-circuits, ranked #1 NorCal 35s, instructor-coach, use slow-motion video for very technical analysis. I integrate the mental game ("hidden" game) with all competitive players in all lessons.
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." Mohatma Gandhi. No day goes by without reading and studying tennis, success, self-improvement, philosophy lite, or business.
Occupation (What occupies my time?):
Somewhat retired but very busy. We were fortunate that we didn't spend every penny we made and retired early. My schedule is my of my own making. I don't waste too much time. I stay focused and productive most days. Some of my time is spent creating and developing tennis products. I also enjoy teaching tennis a few hours a week. When not reading, playing tennis, working out or teaching tennis, I play the harmonica an hour or more a day. In tennis ranking terms, I am a 5.0+ harmonica player and trying to get to a 6.0 or higher. It's far more difficult than I ever thought it would be. Genres: Blues, rock, country, pop, jazz. I "sit-in" with bands/groups often and enjoy improvising. Very challenging.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
For different contributions: Federer, Ferrer, Wilander, Aggasi, Sharapova, Navratilova, Borg, Laver, Tilden...and many more.
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
NTRP 5.0, NTRP 5.5
On the court, I am a:
rightie, singles player, all courter
My favorite local courts:
My own. Life-long dream come true. We have had our own tennis court since 2001. I have two ball machines (each for different purposes). And, yes, I do use the court often. (Most court owners don't use their courts often for a variety of reasons.)
