About Me

 
Hello! My name is Franz.

I began my professional career employed by Chevron Corp., having worked at the Concord and San Ramon locations. I worked in various departments; Banking, Technical Support (Point Of Sale), and Retail Automation (Point Of Sale). I left the corporate world to focus on my health and wellness. Now I am a Certified Massage Therapist.

Since 2012, I have volunteered with assisting in maintaining Cal's Men's swim team (2013-2014 PAC 12 Champions, 2012 and 2014 National Champions).

I am certified (#26972) with the California Massage Therapy Council (www.camtc.org) and a Professional Member with the American Massage Therapy Association (www.amtamassage.org).

Outside of massage, I am active and engage in a number of activities; general exercise, mountain biking, paintball (play competitively), photography, pool, road biking (I have reached the top of Mt. Diablo three times so far), etc.

Contact me by e-mail or phone (call/text)
