My Journey

I'm not Handicapped, I'm Handicapable.
(and no i didnt get that from due date lol)

I left home and drove from nj to california in search of an independent life and safe access to my medicine* so i can live. It's been an interesting journey, lots of ups, lots of downs, and even though I am now weaker than ever...nothing will ever stop me from living my dream, regardless of how long I get to live.

Life is too precious and short to waste time. And I'm Ready.

The three videos below are before and after i left nj, an interview with the Washington Post during my road trip, some audition, and one other one hahaha idk i didnt set up the web site, im kinda lost there :P below that are blog entries! thank you!

Feel free to contact me at all times:

Help to save Mikey's life

As you know, Mikey has always been able to smile through the pain, no matter what, until recently. The pain in his stomach is now worse than ever and has led to an inability to eat, causing rapid weight loss. At 6'1", he's a meager 75 lbs and dropping fast. It's getting more difficult for Mikey to smile through the pain and fear.

One of the only places where Mikey can get help is the MAYO clinic in Minnesota. There, a team of specialized doctors will work together to figure out how his illnesses affect each other and can be treated to restore health and balance to his body so he can keep living his incredible life.

All of this obviously comes with a large amount of costs, which can only be covered with the help and donations of as many people as possible – even if it's just a dollar. Please click on one of the two following links to access the crowd funding campaigns that will help Mikey get better. Thank you!


i have finally arrived back in warmer temperatures. My hands are so done for today, i had an amazing weekend, i have never felt more love in my life. I was honored far more than I deserve!!! considering I was there to honor the Graduates on their accomplishment(s) and those to follow! Im just a regular roller dude, and im extremely lucky to have my life, its incredible. I hope i didnt ramble!!! :/

Speaking in front of anyone is a new experience for me. Thanks to Mellisa (amazing friend from Bergen Community College) i was given that Honor as the inspirational speaker...what im not sure the school or the graduates may all know, is that it is them who inspire me. Everyone who puts forth an effort inspires me, and those who dont, motivate me. I truly hope every Graduate that night reaches every dream they have, because everything is possible.

problems with the flight happened, as well as the wheelchair, i will update on it all tomorrow, for now i need rest, and some chicken noodle soup :)

I Love you all!
thank you for making life beautiful for me

It was a delight to be with you again, so grateful for our family time together and so happy to see the friends once again filling our home with love and laughter. Thank you for this gift of having you, it is so beautiful. By the way, you were very inspiring at Bergen for everyone not just for the graduates. Nothing like a spontaneous, real and straight from the heart speech or as you call it talk. You made us proud again and we continue to be, every day. We love you so very much. Mom
