PRINCIPAL & CEO
Mike is a serial entrepreneur, wellness advocate, and philanthropist committed to making a positive impact in the world through his corporate and personal initiatives. He is exceptionally passionate about wellness, as his spiritual journey started with an incredible first trip to India with Tony Robbins almost ten years ago.

He practices meditation daily and yoga regularly, crediting them with a renewed business focus and an increased ability to be fully present in his daily life. Mike believes that through regular health and wellness practices, such as yoga and meditation, we can elevate our consciousness to become happier and healthier people and increase our impact to our families and communities.
