Michael studied abroad where he first learned a love of language which he has carried with him ever since. He started the Hebrew Language Program at Johnson County Community College, earned a B.A. degree from the University of Kansas in Linguistics, with a focus on cultural dialects and Jewish Languages, and a B.S. degree from the University of South Florida in Communication Science Disorders.

Michael has perfected his clear communication skills as a teacher and speech therapist as well as operating his own business as a dialect coach for foreign professionals. He has also served as communication strategist for several local political campaigns, developing their messaging and coordinating their community outreach programming. More and more businesses are starting to serve and employ a more global community. The faster and more effectively a business can embrace this truth, the more success it will achieve. 

Michael stays involved with his community through the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary and Suncoast Corgi Rescue, helping to care for rescued animals and volunteers with the North Pinellas County Democratic Club.
