In conjunction with Laguna’s “First Thursday Art Walks,” Michael’s one-of-a-kind paintings, drawings, photographs, films and sculptures depict his creativity from the past three years he’s traveled between Paris, France and Laguna Beach, California. His artistic renderings celebrate the international cultures of skateboarding and art as they connect his passion and constant pursuit to live life.

Michael believes that every life should be lived. Every person is gifted in some way and that gift should be shared with the world. It is from these values that Elemental Awareness was founded in 2003.  Elemental Awareness was created to educate and inspire young individuals to develop self-esteem, social and environmental awareness and empower them with tools to lead successful lives.
