In 2006 Michael became the worlds first and only paraplegic hot air balloon pilot. Being "the first" brought him many opportunities and media attention. He decided to use this added attention for doing good in the world. He is passionate and devoted to spreading his "anything's possible" message to a multitude of audiences. He feels very fortunate to have built a successful career speaking and flying that allows him to positively influence so many generations of people. Michael has set new goals for himself that he will share with you on this website.
In addition to spreading his positive message, Michael is working to raise funds to build a hot air balloon that would allow anyone with any disability to rise above that disability riding in a hot air balloon. Michael can tell you first hand what a worthwhile cause this is.
