Personal Trainer & Massage Therapist

My journey

I began my health and wellness journey in my 20s while training in various martial arts styles such as boxing, Jeet Kune Do, and Jujitsu; but primarily in the Japanese martial art of Aikido.

In 2015, I took a break from martial arts to concentrate on my work as a public speaking instructor for middle school students. It was during this time that I began my own fitness journey by shedding a bunch of weight and body fat. Not long afterward I obtained my personal training certification shortly afterward.

I started at City Sports club working with clients from various backgrounds and age groups. With the arrival of the COVID lockdowns and the closing of the corporate gyms, I moved my services online and led many of my former clients in maintaining their health despite the sedentary lifestyle imposed during that time.

I'm now a personal trainer with the EXOS company working at a multinational tech firm; I also provide massage therapy services under one of Silicon Valley's premier chiropractic offices, and lastly I provide Stick mobility and massage therapy services at the Dao Wellness & Acupuncture center in South San Jose

I look forward to meeting and working with you on your health and wellness goals!
