Why I Do What I Do

I imagine a future with more role models, more leaders, more stories told, more truths shared, and more optimism spread.

I believe in people that are purpose-driven, self-motivated, and passionate about making a big impact to the world.

My mission is to help individuals that are hungry to take action on their dreams.

Together we redefine what it truly means to be confident, charismatic, and influential.

Organizations I've Worked With

My 2017 Projects

Dan Akers

Visual Effects Supervisor
Blur Studios

"In 2017, I had to present at the world's largest conference in computer graphics (SIGGRAPH). Michael helped me build the confidence and content to inspire an audience of 2000 people. And as a result of our training, I have finally overcome a lifelong fear of public speaking."

Tristan de Montebello

2017 World Championship of Public Speaking Finalist
CEO, AboutTheStart.com

"In 7 months, Michael took me from ZERO public speaking experience to the finals of the World Championships of Public Speaking! Never would I have imagined that out of 30,000 competitors, I would find myself standing amongst the top 10. Best of all, I was able to share a message I genuinely believed in - in front of an audience of 3000 people."
