Born in Toronto, Canada, from childhood, I was always interested in Asian culture and martial arts. I first journeyed to Japan in 1994, focusing on the Japanese arts of Aikido, Iaido, and tea ceremony. After injuring my knee and not having much success in treating it with other forms of therapy, I discovered Master Endo and Tao Shiatsu. From then on I focused my studies on the healing arts of Tao Shiatsu & Tao Sangha.
Currently I work as a Tao Shiatsu Instructor and Therapist, giving workshops and classes in Toronto, and Montreal & Vancouver, and practice Buddhist chanting regularly for the benefit of all beings.
