Experience in public relations and marketing roles makes it easy for him to connect with guests, truly listening to and attending to their needs. He holds a bachelor’s degree in English from University of Massachusetts Amherst, a massage certificate from Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, and a cosmetology certificate from DiGrigoli School of Cosmetology.  

In the massage room, he can perform a variety of massage styles and is a true believer in the value that this modality brings to one’s life. An area of particular interest for him is deep tissue techniques because of their ability to decrease pain and discomfort while increasing joint mobility. As a Reiki master, the therapeutic effects of Reiki regularly incorporate themselves into a session.
