Michael Garibaldi, M.T.S.  is founder and President of StoryStrong. Mr. Garibaldi studied the Meisner Technique in Santa Monica, a profound experience that ignited a life-long interest in the study of the human person engaged in the pursuit of truth through the lens of the performing arts. While later pursuing a Master's Degree in theology at the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family (also a significant milestone), he co-founded the Theophany Theatre Company and served as the company's first Artistic Director. Theophany toured domestically and internationally from 2003 to 2010. Most importantly, Mr. Garibaldi is the proud father of seven delightful children and one amazing wife, without whose unwavering support and selfless love, real beauty might have lacked sufficient dimension. 


He who holds the Christian and Catholic view of human nature will feel certain that it is a universal and therefore a sane view, and will be satisfied. But if he has lost the sane vision, he can only get in back by something very much like a mad vision; that is, by seeing man as a strange animal and realising how strange an animal he is.”
— G.K. Chesterton
