Michael Skinny Cavallo grew up just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. After injuries cut short his senior year as a college hockey player, Michael pursued a career in the music business. Throughout his 15-year career, Michael struggled with addiction, narrowly escaping death a few times. In 2016, Michael decided it was time to break the cycle, and began fighting for his life. After overdosing in an airport bathroom, he entered treatment. Michael has since turned his life over to helping others who struggle with the disease of addiction. In December, Michael became a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist. Having a passion for awareness, advocacy, and reducing the stigma of addiction, Michael now speaks at schools and various community outreach programs in the hopes of preventing others from succumbing to this deadly disease. Michael understands the struggle of addiction, and the power of recovery.
