Michael is a co-founder and chief operating officer for Three Trees Institute. He had a combined total of 28 years of military and public service when he retired permanently from public safety in the fall of 2020.

He continued his energy healing education by receiving his Reiki I Energy Healing certification in February 2021.

He is currently developing a course in conjunction with Three Trees Institute partner Guryan Tighe designed to help peace officers, first responders, front line health care workers and our armed forces veterans navigate their own struggles and challenges. He intends to leverage his own real world successes and failures in combination with Guryan's extensive expertise on the science of fear, organizational culture change, and corporate consulting to facilitate positive change and healing opportunities for us all. They hope to introduce and present their material at the start of the new year.
