I am Paul, a sport psychology consultant and clinical massage therapist specializing in trigger point therapy. I’ve worked with performers of all levels in both areas, from the arts to athletics to business. I hold a double-MSc in sport psychology/sport science from Leipzig/Thessaly with internships complete in Gdańsk and Vancouver, a BSc from Waterloo in physiology/psychology, and a massage & hydrotherapy diploma from CCMH. I am a member of the CMTO and CMTBC and am working towards full MPC and CEP certification. I can communicate in Polish, French, and German and live between Toronto, Montréal, and Vancouver, but also spend much time in Germany and Poland.

I absolutely love sport, with over 20 years spent training (and later teaching) judo alone, and am very passionate about the Internet. I spend much time diving deep into disruptive, democratizing open source projects like Bitcoin, Firefox, Android, Diaspora, WordPress, GIMP, and Kdenlive. I’m now enrolled in digital currency graduate studies at the University of Nicosia on scholarship and write for Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences’ Institute of Network Cultures as time permits.

Why “spmx”? Sport Psychology and Mx (massage therapy in shorthand)… plus a nod to a favourite webcomic : ).
