His outstanding efforts have been recognized by such prominent media sources as ABC TV, CBS TV, NBC TV, Fox Television, The Baltimore Sun, and The Baltimore Business Journal. Michael will captivate you and provide a new positive outlook on setting and obtaining goals. Michael’s hilarious performance will have you in stitches!
