Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
I honestly don't remember my first client, I was giving massages long before I decided to go to school to be a masseur and my main motivation for taking this path in life was that I enjoy using my hands and energy to help people feel better
Why did you become a Masseur?
I became a Masseur because I've always loved giving and recieving massage. It's calming to the point of being a form of meditation for me while giving massage and my love for a good back massage is endless!!! I always knew I wanted to be in the health care field I just wasn't sure exactally what profession my choice of massage was due two many factors including length and cost of school, average income of massage therapist, impact of my work on clients quality of life. But most of all it was my love of massage that motivated my choice.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
I've been doing massage now since 2003, as long as my body will let me is how long I plan on continuing to be a therapist.
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I love exploring Portland via fixed gear bike, I love good coffee, I love everything in black or white, white mochas, hot tubs, old school bodybuilding, breakfast, sweating my *** off on a hot summer day, the river, camping, woodworking, painting, design...
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
Yes I consider myself successful in massage as in all things theres room for improvement but I'm in the top single digit percentile of my field... A master masseur! ;-)
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
When I say deep tissue I mean deep tissue... Im not going to hurt you cause Im a professional but effective desp tissue can be borderline uncomfortable many times its not and there are many more methods of effectively working deeper facia without simply adding more pressure...
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I stay around the portland area predominantly... Occasionally ill travel up or down the west coast but thats about the furthest... Actually Vancouver BC and Oaxaca MX are the two furthest points north and south I've traveled.
