My road to massage was a long one. I grew up in Westby, WI and spent most of my youth playing sports and helping my dad with his various hobbies. He can build or fix anything and he got me working with my hands from a young age. We refinished cabinets, worked on cars, brewed moonshine, or whatever else he was into that month.

My road to massage was a long one. I grew up in Westby, WI and spent most of my youth playing sports and helping my dad with his various hobbies. He can build or fix anything and he got me working with my hands from a young age. We refinished cabinets, worked on cars, brewed moonshine, or whatever else he was into that month. Eventually I discovered the drums and that kickstarted my love of making music. I taught myself seven different instruments and have spent the last 20+ years in various bands all over the country. I've played drums in the headlining polka band at LaCrosse's Oktoberfest, performed my cabaret band's rock opera to a packed theater, and heaps of awful dive bar shows.


Then one day while working as a property manager at a Bel Air mansion I met my first massage therapist. He was a Boston guy with a thick accent and a dark sense of humor; a complete 180 from the cliché I had believed. I wanted his knowledge and freedom. I wanted to work in different places and meet different people. I wanted to be a massage therapist!

So I became one and found that working on the body is a lot like playing the piano. It's all about precision and pressure, you build to crescendos and ease into a resolution. It's kind of fun and turned into my newest obsession. I sought out the best teachers and started working at Burke Williams Hollywood where I work on about 4,000+ clients in four years. At the spa I received massages from the people who regularly worked on everyone from Elon Musk to Obama. Many of them taught me and I learned to give the people what they want while sneaking in the rehabilitation that they need. To further my knowledge I completed the NHI Neuromusclar program, an exhaustive, and expensive eight month program that taught me how to recognize and treat a myriad of pain and posture issues. I also studied stretch therapy and most importantly finally found a use for that bachelors in Psychology.

But in the end it all comes down to giving you what you're paying for. To some people I'm the guy who helps them relax, and to others I'm the elbow surgeon working out chronic pain issues. Some consider me their friend and other clients know literally nothing about me. I'm fine with either. But one thing is certain, if you've read this far you might as well book a session!
