The journey began on 14 January , 1947 in Detroit, Michigan. The family moved from Detroit that same year to Rochester, NY and that’s where I called home. Graduating from Aquinas Institute in June 1965, I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in July and was at Marine Corps Recruit Training Depot Parris Island, SC in September.

A Vietnam Veteran with an Honorable discharge from the Marine Corps, I returned to Rochester with no real direction known. One day in early 1970, my good friend, David Grossi said, “Let’s take the police exam,” and in July we both entered the Rochester Police Department (RPD) Recruit Training Academy.

In January 1991, I retired as a Sergeant after a great career with assignments in road patrol, tactical unit, swat, communication unit, research & development section and training section.

While in the training section I supervised the Field Training & Evaluation program and Defensive Tactics Training. Further, I was given an assignment to develop physical fitness standards and fitness training for in service personnel. This assignment gave me the opportunity to attend the Cooper Institute of Aerobic Research (Dallas, Texas) and John Jay College (NY, NY) and obtain certifications as a Fitness Specialist. We trained fitness specialists for both the Rochester Police Department and the Fire Department and developed fitness training for the agencies.

In addition to my duties and responsibilities in training, I was trained as a Peer (stress) Counselor with the Critical Incident Response Unit, where we responded to assist Officer involved in critical incidents.

After retiring from the RPD, I was self employed as a training consultant offering tactical survival training to law enforcement and corrections agencies, departments of social services, military services and private corporations. I also worked for Cablre Press – Street Survival Seminars, teaching with my old friend, David Grossi. During that time, David and I co-authored a series of articles on Physical Fitness for the Police Marksman magazine

In 1993, during a lake effect snow storm, Lisa and I left Rochester for Gainesville, Florida to start our education & training for massage therapy at the Florida School of Massage. After graduation, we received National Certification and our Massage Therapist Licensesfrom the State of Florida and New York and have since practiced in both states.

As a certified sports massage therapist, I was a member of the Tampa Bay Chapter (FSMTA) and the Florida Chapter (AMTA) Sports Massage Teams. In 2002, Lisa & I had the exciting opportunity to be members of the Sports Massage Team and work with the athletes at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics &  games. (The Paralympics Games are the world’s premier gathering of disabled athletes.)

Our client base ranges from: Professional, college, elementary/high school and week-end warrior athletes - occupational athletes and anyone who is trying to improve their everyday functional fitness & pain free activities.
