The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your thoughts.

You’ve landed here because this is where you need to be. Something just isn’t feeling right is it?

Maybe you’re a Man and just not feeling it right now? Or perhaps you’re in a relationship and things just aren’t what they used to be?

I’m on a quest to lead men toward a purposeful and meaningful future.

A vital part of this quest is empowering couples to re-create purposeful and meaningful relationships.

The result — a journey toward our most purest forms. A journey toward our quintessence.

My philosophy and guiding principles draw on the science (and art) of human growth and development. My evidence based methods guarantee results. You just need to be curious about the quintessence of the person you see in the mirror.




I contacted Michael because I felt I could not find direction and purpose in my life. Little did I know, all the tools to access that are within me. All that is needed is a key to the padlock. That key, is Michael himself!

I only wish I did it sooner. Go on a path of self discovery, find the real person underneath the facade! Unlock your true potential in every aspect of your life!

I just want to say thank you, you are an amazing coach, you challenge the concepts and paradigms of my subconscious mind that until our mentoring began controlled my life. Not only do you challenge them but you offer alternatives that are constructive to my growth.

I appreciate you and am extremely grateful to have you in my life. I look forward to growing under your guidance and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Coaching with Michael has given me so much clarity and direction.

He has an amazing understanding of what it’s like to be a male in modern society, while still showing me how to implement timeless principles.

“Man is a microcosm, or a little world, because he is an extract from all the stars and planets of the whole firmament, from the earth and the elements; and so he is their quintessence.

“Why 5 stars? I learned so much from this easy read than many other higher profile similar threaded books combined. Look past the first edition typos and the content is on point. Example: The underlying theme to male suicide: clearly identified and discussed, opening what the male purpose is/used to be. Targeted at men between 30-50 it is equally informative for the women in our lives as an easy-read insight on male biology. Reinforcing the 5 stars is the easy and flowing read, you can get stuck in, be enlightened and make significant progress. For a first time effort I’m in for whatever is published next. Watch this name rise”.

This book is an easy to read yet very developmental. If you are starting your journey of self awareness then I suggest you start here. It deciphers a lot of the harder to understand stuff from psychologists such as Jung. Read his stuff and you will get lost. This book is well adapted to the current climate of society!! My only complaint is that it’s not long enough!!!!

A heartfelt manifesto filled with poignant stories and insight and written by someone who has obviously forged the path himself.
