Struck down by a rare form of cancer at a very young age, Michael spent much of his early years living in a hospital. Defying all the odds – he survived. Michael went on to represent Australia in baseball and held an executive position with one of the largest companies in the world at the age of 23. Michael then threw it all away to find his true passion and purpose, to find his WHY.
Despite spending nearly a quarter of his life in hospital, Michael not only forged a highly successful and inspired career he also built and ran a school and orphanage in Haiti, supports the Make a Wish Foundation, and gives a huge amount of his time and funds back into making it “okay” for so many people around the world.
In the last five years, he has presented to over 600,000 people from all walks of life around the world – corporates to Juvenile Detention Centers in Texas, September 11 victims, elite athletes across the globe, to sharing the stage with Sir Richard Branson, the Dalai Lama and Tony Robbins.
In 2016 he released his first tell-all autobiography, which is now a best seller across 6 different countries – and there is a second book coming soon: “Everything will be okay”.
