Michael Fryar was born in Los Angeles and forcibly removed by his parents from the bright, sunny beaches of California to the dreary State of Connecticut. Which lasted for a few years before the family moved to Virginia. Which lasted a few more years before the family left the state of reason and beauty and returned to…Connecticut.

Parents divorced, Michael traveled with his mother to the swampy morass of Louisiana where they opened The Comic Book Emporium while his mother completed her Ph.D. He graduated High School at 15 and focused on the business full time. Michael returned to Connecticut to pursue a Bachelors in Communication before moving to New Jersey to learn that there are places worse than Connecticut. He tried out Massachusetts with his father at his little sandwich shop on Cape Cod before returning to school for a Masters in Education. In Connecticut. Like returning to the scene of some crime. By the time he was 24 he had lived in 6 states, attended 11 schools and was an expert on change, transition, and networking.

He taught elementary school for long enough to get an hours worth of high quality stand-up comedy material before becoming a consultant and attending Law School. He got married, had a kid, got divorced and was now committed to the land of steady habits because he was not going to leave the state and his lovely daughter.

He practiced law for long enough to get an hour and a half worth of high quality stand-up comedy material, served in the National Guard, earned an MBA, and started several successful businesses before his daughter was old enough and he could finally escape what Connecticut was becomming. He transitioned with his new wife and children to Maryland.

Michael currently consults, speaks and coaches on a wide range of topics, including training the trainer, public speaking skills, use of humor in management, change management for those going through involuntary issues, transition management for those going through voluntary change, and topics associated with entrepreneurship, building small businesses, and communication. He has a bachelors in Communication, a Masters in Education, a Masters in Business Administration, and a Juris Doctorite.

He has owned a number of successful small businesses and consulted for large corporations. For a complete C.V. please click here.
