is one of the most highly acclaimed creativity experts in the world and author of the best sellers Thinkertoys (A Handbook of Business Creativity), ThinkPak (A Brainstorming Card Deck), and Cracking Creativity (The Secrets Of Creative Genius).

As an officer in the United States Army, Michael organized a team of NATO intelligence specialists and international academics in Frankfurt, Germany, to research, collect, and categorize all known inventive-thinking methods. His international team applied those methods to various NATO military, political, and social problems and in doing so it produced a variety of breakthrough ideas and creative solutions to new and old problems. After leaving the military, Michael facilitated CIA think tanks using his creative thinking techniques.

Michael later applied these creative-thinking techniques to problems in the corporate world with outstanding successes. Michael has provided keynote speeches, workshops, and seminars on fostering creative thinking for clients who range from Fortune 500 corporations, such as DuPont, Kellogg's, General Electric, Kodak, Microsoft, Exxon, General Motors, Ford, USA, AT&T, Wal-Mart, Gillette, and Hallmark, to associations and governmental agencies. In addition to his work in the United States, Michael has worked with clients in countries around the world.

Some of Michael’s creative-thinking techniques that were refined by his government and corporate practice were published in his best-seller Thinkertoys (A Handbook of Business Creativity), which the Wall Street Journal reported "will change the way you think." Women In Business lauded it as "one of the most important business titles of the decade." USA said "believe it or not, this wonderful book will have you challenging the seemingly impossible every day."

Executive Book Summaries praised it by saying, "What we need is a compendium of ways to solve problems. And that’s exactly what you get in Thinkertoys." and Entrepreneur acclaimed it as "required reading for anyone in business." Success magazine awarded Thinkertoys with a Gold Medal for being "one of the best of the best business books." The medal is awarded to books that have that made a major impact on readers who say they've experienced a change -- an improvement in their lives and businesses.
