Michael is the award winning author of “This. Only This. Mindfulness Strategies for Finding Peace in Every Moment.” www.thisonlythis.com And the founder of ZenWhim, Inc. www.zenwhim.com. His attraction to meditation and mindfulness arose out of his own spiritual seeking at a young age. Since 2004 he has been teaching meditation and mindfulness classes and workshops in both Northern and Southern California to a wide-ranging audience—from stressed company executives to enthusiastic soccer moms.

Additionally, Michael has worked for over twenty years in the field of computer technology. During that time he has progressed through every role involved in creating and managing computer software, from programmer to program and portfolio manager. He has worked in diverse environments, from Wall Street financial companies and regulated medical device companies, to small dot.com startups. As a result, he has a strong understanding of what it means to live and work in the world, and what it’s like to cope with stressful office and personal politics.

His writing comes out of his personal experience using mindfulness to navigate his own challenging states of mind, as well as the transformations he has been privileged to observe in others. His book grew out of his deep desire to make the teachings of mindfulness accessible to a wider audience in a humorous, logical and approachable format.
