Right out of high school, I joined the military, serving 6 years honorably, traveling the world in defense of freedom and democracy. After getting out of the military and being homeless for approximately a year, I decided to attend school, with the help of a few friends. I began studying massage therapy at the National Institute of Technology of Long Beach, where I graduated in February of 2008 at the top of my class, receiving a high honors diploma in massage therapy. I specialize and find my passion in Polynesian Massage (Lomi Lomi), where I am most inspired by the connection between spiritual healing and physical touch as therapist and client work together to achieve peace and balance.
Within 4 months of studying, I began working at Cheta Day Spa of Long Beach, where I obtained proficient skills in Ethiopian and Armenian Massage, learning from supervisors, originally from Ethiopia and Armenia. Other modalities that my knowledge consists of are; Reflexology, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Prenatal (Side Lying), Swedish, Aromatherapy, Shiatsu, Hot Stone Therapy and many others in which I found myself performing on a regular basis while employed at Lucky Bamboo Massage Spa of Fresno.

My hobbies and things that I love to do consist of spending valuable time with my daughter, traveling/ photographing the world and training; Capoeira, Muay Thai and other forms of martial arts, to keep my body strong and my mind sharp.
