Chief Instructor, President and CEO of Mid-Ohio Personal Defense Solutions:
Growing up in the shooting sports and enjoying hunting, the natural progression into firearm education came early. With a background of more than 20-years in public safety, public safety instruction and education, moving into the professional shooting arena has been a desire and passion of Michael’s for many years. This has never been more evident than when he is in front of his classroom where he feels most comfortable.
