Meet Michael
First GENERATION American KID STRIVING TO HELP Students, LEADERS, Teams, and business professionals, take personal responsibility for their lives and reconnect to their purpose SO THEY CAN CREATE TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE IN THE LIVES OF THOSE AROUND THEM.
Passionate About Inspiring Others

When he was 18, Michael dropped his speech class in college and swore he would never speak in public again after a humiliating presentation. Today, Michael is a Game-Changing speaker and Best-Selling author who has impacted thousands of people with his message of resilience. He was born in Soviet Russia and is the grandson of a ‘Siege of Leningrad’ and Dachau camp survivor. Michael's master storytelling ability leaves audiences exhilarated and equipped to act on their inspiration. His success principles empower audiences to smash fears, limitations, and passive, excuse-oriented mindsets. Michael takes his audiences on a journey through his story of humble beginnings to becoming a business owner, an author, and a motivational speaker. He reveals how the personal choices we make, the attitudes we carry, and the principles we choose to live by, affect our mental health and performance, and determine the success of our lives and organizations.

Michael's presentations engage a shift in the culture of organizations by empowering leaders, captivating audiences, and motivating employees to find purpose in life and business by setting an extraordinary vision, reshaping their identities to match that vision, and following through by taking massive action. You can either "Brace for impact" or "Prepare for impact." 

Michael has trained face-to-face with Bo Eason, a former NFL standout, acclaimed Broadway performer, and an international presence/story coach to develop his message and now uses this message to train, inspire, and motivate audiences to achieve their greatest potential through his story and Jim Rohn-inspired speaking. 


Michael also offers keynotes and training for leaders to refine their stories and understand the power of strategic storytelling for impact and influence.
