My love for massage started long before my formal training. I would massage friends and family for years before I ever set foot in a classroom. My time at the Massage Institute of Memphis provided me the tools and techniques to take that passion and turn it into an effective practice.

There are two other major passions in my life and the first is my family. I am a newlywed with two wonderful stepsons. My wife, Jessica, and I love to travel. We love to experience other cultures, especially the foods. Travel also gives me the opportunity to seek out new treatment ideas and approaches.

My other major passion is photography. I have been a professional photographer for over 12 years and still love to create beautiful images. Photography provided the opportunity for me to travel to numerous countries for both professional and personal work. My images have been published in several magazines as well as displayed in art shows and offices.

Other interests include:

  • Exercise, especially teaching and riding in spin classes
  • Spending time outdoors
  • Nerding out to various scifi shows and movies
