Michael is a creative problem-solver to his very core. As a communicator he can sort out what to say and how to say it. As an artist, he brings creative mastery, as a team member he brings the highest degree of personal and professional dedication.

Very few people have the kind of ability and willingness to forge a path through the status quo with intention, sincerity and insight that Michael brings to the table.

Michael is one of those rare breeds of creatives that combines design creativity with a super-clear business mind.

He not only creates the most compelling brands – he crafts brand strategy that becomes an integral part of your business DNA, your goals, ambitions and values. He is expert at what he does – gently but firmly leading his clients to discover the road they really should be taking.

Every time that I’ve seen Michael in action his creative strategy blows my mind. To add to the mix, he is a superb storyteller and teacher. His enthusiasm for what he does shines in everything he does.

You remember that terrier from those Kibbles and Bits commercials? Well, that’s Michael. I’ve never seen anyone with so much creative energy.

It is impossible to sit down and discuss an idea with him and not believe in short order that it’s not only possible, but a moral imperative to make it so.

Dallas Paquette, Lift Renovations

When I first met with Michael, I didn’t feel I was even ready to start branding. Then he asked me my story and showed me that my brand was already part of me—he just needed to shine a light on it so I could see it too.

Michael’s talk about his ‘7-Touch Exploding Brand Technique™’ was a blast—he’s very informative and funny, like a down to earth Brand Samurai.

Scott Pym-Hember, The Company Inc.

Michael’s 7-Touch Exploding Brand Technique™ is as entertaining and engaging as you could wish from a theatre athlete; it outlines a clear, logical, and sometimes surprising line of progression to brand development and deployment following his mantra: ‘Keep it Simple’. I came away from the session excited to revisit the way I think about my story.
