My name is Michael, but everyone calls me Mikey. I’m 54 yrs. old, and currently living in Texas. I have 2 children, I am a grand dad twice over! (feels great!). Like everyone in this world, I too, have gone thru so much in my life. My full story will soon be told in hopes of reaching those that have travelled thru the same horror I have with domestic abuse and its outcome.

I have been programming/java scripting and designing websites for over 30yrs. I got my first lucky break with a Fortune 500 company “USDM” back in 2008. I was a web programmer for the team, my job was a backend web programmer along with google analytics and simple design maintenance. I was blessed to have worked with such talented individuals, I truly learned alot from others around me. My programming skills allowed me to be part of well-known websites such as; Toronto Now, Sevierville, Gatlinburg, Dollywood, Hilton, Emerald Island, Great Mall of America and Atlanta Underground. It’s an honor to have been given a chance to code and program for such well known travel agencies and theme park owners.

I am currently employed with Ysassi & Ysassi Law Firm as an I.T. Tech. I also have a web design company (ProductionQue), I create custom graphics, web programming, print designs, ecommerce and maintenance to all types of businesses.  

I struggle with PTSD, Anxiety and Depression, it takes me to the darkest places ever in my life. Each day I wake up to a different demon from the past. I have been thru Domestic Abuse by living with a jealous partner for 12yrs., I have been mentally and physically beaten but always managed to bounce back on my own. My life has been scared with anger, confusion, and loneliness. Its hard for me to open up to anyone simply because of the lack of trust I have and what placed me in this state-of-mind.

I truly believe my life has hit that “reset” button and I have started  to enjoy life once more!  I keep myself busy with all I have created; the new podcast project (Co-Creating Impact), web designs (ProductionQue) and I.T. work at the law office (Ysassi Law Firm).   …Onward! **
