Mikhail is no stranger to the struggles that can occur while transitioning from military to civilian life. A veteran of the Second Army Ranger Battalion and winner of the prestigious and physically demanding Army Best Ranger Competition in 2006, he is all too familiar with the challenges one can face in the midst of life-altering changes. Ranger Road is his answer to finding and restoring the importance of brotherhood, teamwork, and family for all brothers and sisters who have lived their lives in service to our country.

As a former MMA fighter and someone who prides themselves on physical health and fitness, Mikhail marries that with the importance of mental health as well, thus giving way for the foundation of the numerous programs Ranger Road implements for veterans.

As if running an entire non-profit weren’t enough, Mikhail is also an officer with the San Mateo Police Department. In his rare but ever precious spare time Mikhail enjoys fishing, wakeboarding, riding motorcycles and picnicking with his family. He is married to his best friend, Eileen, and together they pursue their passion of assisting the veteran community. As an adopted mantra, Mikhail knows that nothing happens on its own, but Together We are Strong!
