About Me

I am married to Kelly and we have 2 children, Seth and Carli. I served in the United States Marines as a Recon Marine and a sniper. I was severly wounded in Iraq in 2006 and currently am devoting the year to help other wounded veterans while trying to break the World Record for most Ironman 70.3 triathlons and long-distance triathlons in a year!

Speaking Engagements 

  • -I enjoy sharing my experinces and stories. If you would like to have me visit your school, work, athletic temas/events, and social events please reach out. mike@apexops.com

  • Some of my past speaking engagments have been to High Schools, Middle Schools, and High School athletic teams just to name a few. 

  • -Request to come and visit have come for many reasons such as overcoming adversity, the power of the mind to recover thru sport and recreation, as well as support that can be linked to family, friends, co-workers, etc. 

  •  -Lastly all of my time has been donated at each speaking event. Our time is a gift and if I can help you or your team overcome an obstacale then I have done my job. Any money that is offered is asked to be donated to a special cause. I take pride in saying that I have not taken a single penny as a guest speaker so don't be afraid to reach out.
