He has been practicing tai chi and Chinese massage since the age of 13, and has studied kung fu and qigong for more than 20 years. He has taught martial arts and Thai yoga massage in North America, Asia, and Europe, and is the author of two books, Tai Chi and Thai Yoga Massage. He has also produced a video, Thai Yoga Massage.
