Michael attended Catholic school in his younger years, and the music teacher there helped him find his voice and his calling in music in the Church. During these years of Catholic school, Michael fell in love with leading the church as a cantor for the school masses. In high school, he picked up a guitar and his love for leading worship grew even stronger so he became part of the LIFE TEEN band which lead teens to a deeper call to worship and relationship with God.
Currently Michael serves as the LIFE TEEN Music Minister at Holy Martyrs Church in Medina, OH. He regularly serves as a worship leader at a local young adult ministry with Matt Fafrak called – First Fridays at Francis. It is a night of praise & worship and Adoration for young adults and all ages. You can check out more about it on their facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/firstfridaysf3/
He is also on staff at a local non-denominational church as a worship leader. He loves to worship in the Catholic Liturgy and the Christian church, and it helps him to become a better steward for faith, and a better worship leader. He also writes for his blog and creative arts ministry called praise habit. He and his wife, Sarah contribute to this ministry to help bring a better understanding of worship, and give others a glimpse to what a worship lifestyle looks like.

Overall, his passion is to see people in the Cleveland area encounter Jesus through the gifts of music and worship God has given him. He lives in Lyndhurst (a Cleveland suburb) with his wife (Sarah) and his son (Liam).
