Duncan attended the Stasio Institute of Therapeutic Massage in 2011. After matriculating he worked primarily in chiropractic settings performing therapeutic massage, though he has gathered a wealth of spa experience throughout his years as well.
Duncan had planned on being a college professor of communications/media studies prior to entering massage school, but grew tired of academia toward the second half of his master’s program and elected to leave rather than finish a degree he had no intention of using. A friend offered to put him through massage school at no cost while he figured out what he wanted to do with my life; it turned out that massage fit his demeanor and was enjoyable, so here he is many years later still a massage therapist.
Outside of work he tries to stay active, intellectually engaged, and entertained.
