  • Documentary film ‘The Westsiders’
  • Feature film ‘Chapter and Verse’
  • Red Bull ‘5X’ games

Michael states, “The goal of this presentation is in part to showcase a summary of these works but more importantly to speak to the purpose and intention behind each of them. I want to share the lessons I’ve learned along the way and ultimately to express my gratitude for these opportunities. We are living in intense and radically changing times where truth seems more and more subjective, our attention spans are diminishing, and real connection seems harder to find. This show is an opportunity for me to share some of my experiences with the hopes they will help others to connect with themselves and each other more and empower them to help create the future they want to see.”

RSVP is required.
