Michael graduated from Loma Linda University in 1995 with a Bachelors’ Degree in Occupational Therapy. Enhancing his interest in complimentary and integrative medicine, Michael was able to fulfill clinical requirements with both traditional and non-traditional internships gaining valuable perspectives and insights into various healing models. Michael incorporated these insights while treating in numerous settings from inpatient and acute rehab, skilled nursing, home health and both hospital based and private outpatient clinics.

In 1998, Michael attended his first “John F. Barnes Myofascial Release” seminar and found the “missing link” in integrating his education and prior insights with everyday practice. Michael received extensive Myofascial Release training reaching instructor status before moving to Austin in 2003 to join the gifted manual therapy team at Hands On Physical Therapy.

In 2012, Michael became a Certified Titleist Performance Institute Medical Professional allowing him to combine a long time passion for golf and sports with a passion for manual therapy. That passion led to founding Pain Free Performance and co-founding The Golf Performance Center @ Seven Canyons-Sedona with renowned golf professional and Director of Golf @ Seven Canyons, Dave Bisbee.
