Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
It was almost 2 decades ago and answered an ad for a male massage agency for men, went on the interview and was hired on the spot. That very same night I had my first client at the Marriott Marqui named Danny. He was very nice and pleasant and on the spot I knew I would always do this work and he has been a regular since.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
Yes I would!!!! After so many years of enjoying both the therapeutic/healing and erotic/sensual aspect of it, I thoroughly enjoy massage and the great experiences I have that I would miss it if I ever stopped.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
Very Much so!!! One does not stay in this industry for this long and make a living doing something they enjoy and have a lot of repeat clients and not be successful.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
I want them to feel like a million bucks!!! Relaxed, stress free and like they have had an amazing experience and are wanting to come back to see me.
Why did you become a Masseur?
As a child it was always my thing to massage peoples backs, I think as a Pisces we are a very tactile and healing sign. It is in my nature to want to make people feel good and I have always said that touch is healing and loving. It is who I have always been.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
My sensibility and intuitiveness to know what you are going through and what is making you feel better on the spot. My sensuality aspect that goes along with it makes for a healing and erotic, wonderful feeling.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I travel on a very regular basis and love experiencing new places and getting clients everywhere. Not much of a homebody here, usually way too active and busy to be that. :-)
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
Training and experience, one can learn so much more with that many years under their belt and the practical part of working constantly improves you but the true key apart from knowing what you are doing is LOVING what you are doing and being passionate about it. Without that, it wont be as great for the client.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
20 years and never plan on stopping. :-)
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
Love what you are doing, be aware of who is on your table and what their needs are and sharpen your skills with practice and technique.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
Like it was the best massage and experience they have ever had and will want to come back for more.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
Native New Yorker, people person with a good disposition and that tries my best to make everyone feel very comfortable and am always in the present moment. And apparently I am told that I am very easy on the eyes.
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Traveling as often as possible to experience new places and cultures, museums, theater, dining out with friends and hitting the gym regularly.
