I'm a poet, impact speaker, and communications coach. I use poetry primarily as a tool to help people connect with themselves, find confidence to share their stories, and teach them to communicate confidently under pressure. You can book me to speak, perform or coach at your event or organization.
Michael is a total pro - an amazing artist and performer. He worked with us on a last-minute project and came up with some very creative and artistic material in a short amount of time. He also rearranged his schedule to accommodate our needs and was prompt in his arrival and professional in his demeanor. I cannot recommend Michael highly enough for any and all writing, speaking, or performing needs. Such an an amazing talent!

What to Expect
You can expect me to give life to your ides, experiences and stories through the medium of poetry. Whether it's writing a requisitioned/themed piece for your event, performing, teaching, or all the above, I'm passionate helping people use poetry to connect stories to purpose. There are no limits just opportunities :)
Michael is passionate about guiding people in discovering their own unique voices: regardless of age, race, gender, socio-economic status or religious belief. Michael fully embraces his purpose in his work as a poet, impact speaker, and communications coach, believing in the life-changing power of people's stories.
Through the years, Michael has been invited to speak, perform, and teach at universities, conferences, businesses, churches, rallies, fundraisers, and prisons. Most notably, he was invited to speak at Oaks Christian School's TEDx Conference on how poetry can lead us back to our most authentic selves.
Until recently, Michael served at the United Way of Greater Los Angeles as an Impact Speaker, where he used the power of storytelling to bring awareness, inspire action, and raise capital to combat issues surrounding poverty in Los Angeles County. He now serves as President of Creative Development/CoFounder of a storytelling company - The Auditory Museum LLC.
