In 2004, Michael sustained an ACL & meniscus tear while playing football. He has an understanding of what it means to recover physically, emotionally, and mentally. After his recovery, he continued to run several marathons in 2006 and 2007.
He has a love for helping athletes reach their competitive goals while learning how to grow in understanding of their mind and body.
He attended Fuller Seminary, completing an MA in Theology while pursuing the Navy Chaplain Corps. However, the ACL and meniscus injury interrupted this pursuit. It was during this process that he increased his understanding of resilience, focus, and, reframing opportunity.
He’s traveled to Asia, Africa, Central America, and the Middle East as a student. During these trips, he witnessed how sports were a common language. Sports such as soccer and basketball were often how friendships were created. Attending a soccer match in Tel Aviv, Israel was an awesome highlight during these adventures!
Other Services We Provide
Leaving Home-Transitioning In Sports-Career Ending-Retiring
We offer guidance for athletes and their families as they work their way through the sometimes difficult transition from high school to college, and college to professional sports. Teaching valuable life skills that assist the student/athlete as they face the social, academic, athletic, financial, and geographic changes help with the transition of leaving home and heading off to college or entering the complex world of professional sports. Athletes learn to live authentically and show up empowered. We also help family members process the changes their family is going through as their athletes prepares to leave home or enter professional sports.
Getting Ready for the NFL, MLB or the NBA?
We help college football and basketball players prepare for the rigorous NFL and NBA Combines and draft by teaching them how to maximize their results across the board, interview with key NFL and NBA personnel, show up authentically and perform at their best. Once in the league, we help them manage the difficult transitional process of becoming a pro and everything they face in this process.
We also work with athletes new to minor league baseball as they leave home or college. For many the transitions that professional baseball players face are difficult. Learning how to balance time, the demands of the game, pressure to perform, learning how to live on their own, and manage new relationships are keys to performing at a high level.
