By 16 he was competing in tournaments around the state of Texas and Full Contact by age 17. He enlisted in the US Army in 1981 and was stationed at Ft.

Wayne was exposed to hypnosis while training as a Full Contact Kick-boxer at around 17 years old. This interest sparked a desire to learn about all things mental which lead in to learning styles, personality types and many other modalities. Wayne also holds a Certificate in Hypnotherapy and is considered a Master Hypnotist.

Wayne is unique in many ways from others in his field simply because of his life experiences and training. He did not start out in life wanting to become a hypnotist but it is where he is in life at this moment and as a result has helped many, many people improve their lives by overcoming the past.
Wayne tells people two things when he starts to work with them; they are the following quotes.
“God put your eyes in front of your head and not the back for a reason. It’s to look forward and not back. You can do nothing to change the past, but you can prepare for the future.”
“Sometimes we must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so we can accept the one waiting for us.”
