Michael is the Producer, Director and Emcee for the Five Minute Follies, Philadelphia's only ongoing family friendly vintage variety show.
His interactive one-man show "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" will be staged on Sunday, June 29th at 5pm and 7pm at the Adrienne Theater in Philadelphia, as part of the SoLow Festival.
In the show he will be recounting my experiences of childhood sexual abuse, as well as his struggles with recovery and finding peace.
"Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" will also include breaks where the audience can comment, ask questions, and share their stories. The hope is to open up a frank and productive discussion on the issues surrounding childhood sexual abuse, including ways to help prevent it.
Healing is an ongoing process for Michael. After many unhealthy relationships, he has been fortunate enough to find a significant other who is completely supportive and understanding about all my daily challenges. His wife Kristie has helped to give him the strength to dig through all these awful memories and try and turn them into something that can make a positive impact.
Putting the show together has been a harrowing experience. Digging down to the root of all these experiences, and letting the emotion connected to that root come out, is both terrifying and illuminating. Just by putting together this show, Michael is healing.
Together we are stronger and together we heal. We are not alone.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recently incorporated major changes to the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program, of which, most changes will take effect, December, 2012.
Included among the changes was the renaming of the Fatigued Driving BASIC to the HOS Compliance BASIC. This change will reflect that the category measures everything from on-duty violations to paperwork violations.
Under the newly named Basic, a truck driver could obtain as many as 24 violation points for simply writing the wrong date on his or her logs, thus resulting in unfair categories.
By changing the Driver Fatigue Basic to the Hours of Service Basic, manual form and manner violations will count against a carrier and driver, while allowing data to be gathered to show where electronics will eliminate violations.
FMCSA regulations expert, Richard Wilson joins us to discuss the changes to the CSA 7 Basics and why he believes that it is being done in order to achieve mandatory EOBR regulations.

Join us for a 2 hr. jam-sesh with Mr. Natural, Dan Farella of Return to Nature, a Wild Plant and Mushroom, Forest Medicine, and Primitive Skills Resource. (www.Returntonature.us) (https://www.facebook.com/ReturntoNatureSkills)
Dan will be discussing the empowering lifestyle choice of providing for one's own food via wild-sourcing and community-supported gardens and agriculture (CSG/CSA). Food Sovereignty IS Food Security. In times such as these, it is important to cultivate such skills so that we can make empowered choices and avoid the culture and industry of sickness and death that undergirds Big Pharma and Big Agro.
Most importantly, Dan will be discussing how to cultivate the kind of sensitivity that allows us to intuitively "tune in" to plant intelligence and the Gaian Mind, allowing us to engage in a form of communication and dialogue with the Plant Kingdom.

This week we welcome Kids Protecting Kids founder Carissa Miller to the show.
Carissa went from a lonely, sad little girl covered in shame, who started cutting herself at age 11, with thoughts of suicide; to someone who has watched her life transform right before her eyes.
She says if she can do it, anyone can, they only need love, support and encouragement. and she will share her own story of abuse and what she did to not only come through it and thrive but where she found the inspiration to help others through her organization.
That is where she wants to help fill in some voids and help children rebuild their lives like her mom and others helped her rebuild her own.
Carissa feels that having a summer camp dedicated to CSA survivors would be a wonderful way to help children rebuild their lives and help them understand they are not alone.
All they need to do is take the first step and her organization will walk with them.
Carissa says "It is a very hard journey, but one worth fighting for, because you are fighting for your life"
