Since catching the documentary filmmaking bug in 1999, I have been working nearly continually in bringing into existence and disseminating media messages that share wellness, sustainability, spirituality, understanding of culture, and peace. I am grateful to all the filmmakers and teachers who have influenced me along this path. It has been most rewarding and creative, as a way to leave a mark for others, so that they might receive what so impressed me at different times in my life, and open the door to a transformative life.
"Michael is in his life purpose, having contributed to the success of the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center while getting trained and certified by our Live Food Nutrition Intensives. This strengthened his abilities for his work in the world." - Gabriel Cousens, MD

Networking: It is likely that I know someone in the community who is just who you're looking for to develop your optimal support and creative team. Just ask the people who nickname me "Networker for a Higher Purpose." Join my tribe!
