WELL KNOWN FOR HIS HONESTY, INTEGRITY, HUMOR AND CREATIVITY.
Mike is one of the most genuine people you will meet and is a rare find in the world of
teenage motivation. Many people have said that he has an incredible capacity to connect

There are hundreds of people who would point to him as a positive personal mentor and role model in their lives during their middle and high school years. His education includes a bachelor's degree from Rutgers University, during which time got his start mentoring teens with an area non-profit.

JIGSAW (Mike's brand new book for teens)
Mike wanted to create a lasting impression on the young people he speaks with and to,
so he wrote a book for them. This book is the result of years of personal introspection, and
thousands of hours with teens, as a leader/mentor and friend. Within the pages of this
unique project, teens are captured by stories and metaphors, and are led to observe and
process their own life experiences. After all - life is a jigsaw puzzle coming together.
Experiences and opportunities are the pieces of each person's life story, and how each
person assembles and uses these pieces creates the final picture. What that final picture
depicts will not be an accident, but a culmination of the choices we make along the way,
the people we chose to connect with, and the perspective that we hold.
"Mike's life-lessons, thru story-telling, will be valuable for teens, youth workers, parents and grandparents. Give Jigsaw a read." - Phil DiCasolo, 40 year YMCA veteran
“Prob one of the funnest (yes funnest) books ever.” Lauren, age 17
“I want EVERY one of my students to read Jigsaw.” Preston Springer, teacher
