Michael was born in Soviet Russia and came to the United states at two years old with his parents and siblings as a political refugee. He is the grandson of a ‘Siege of Leningrad’ and Dachau camp survivor. He uses this powerful story along with his own battle against mediocrity to draw a beautiful parallel between creating a life of purpose and failing to reach your greatest potential.

Raised with timeless principles that once shaped his life, Michael takes his audiences on a humorous yet emotional journey through his story, revealing how the personal choices we make, the attitudes we carry, and the principles we choose to live by, determine the outcome of our lives. Michael quit his corporate job when his failure to live up to his potential was revealed, a day that changed the course of his life.

In the years that followed, Michael became an author, inventor, and a speaker, sharing his story-packed experience in company culture, leadership, will-power, mindset, and motivation, to inspire others to “Stay Alive All Your Life,” using 11 of life’s most valuable principles.

His presentations engage a shift in the culture of organizations by empowering leaders, captivating audiences, and forever sticking in the minds of those who choose greatness for their professional and personal lives.

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.
