I was blessed to live part of my childhood in Brazil. Like most Latin American countries, the culture there is much more touch oriented than in the United States. Consequently, I found myself surrounded by positive platonic touch experiences that have become the foundation for my understanding of the benefits of human contact and connection.
I love nature and the unconditional acceptance that I feel when I am in natural settings. Nature has been a sanctuary for me and I strive to emulate this non-judgmental energy in my service to others. During my life, I have followed my passions and whether I was farming, planting trees, fighting forest fires, thinning trees for forest health or surveying flora and fauna, much of my career has been connected to nature.
I enjoy working with others, and as a Professional Cuddler, I can focus more on human connection. Family is important to me, at home and in the community at large. I have been in a committed relationship for over thirty years and have two wonderful children and two amazing grandsons. Being a father and grandfather has taught me to have understanding and compassion for the myriad of experiences that life brings, and given me the opportunity to continually reflect, grow, and change.
