A former Maclean Hunter writer/editor/publisher in Canada (13 years) Micheal J. O'Brien (not to be confused with the evangelical singer) , with a group of his journalist peers, bought the Aerospace and Defence publishing group of Maclean Hunter (MH) & continued to publish for another 15 years.

For another 14 years MPRM Group owned and published some of MH's science, technology and business periodical properties after Maclean Hunter met its demise in 1993 when a predatory takeover by Rogers ended the 100+ year-old publishing giant.

 

Micheal is an avid member and financial contributor to Reporters Without Borders (RSF) to support the integrity of journalism in every corner of the globe.

Even though he graduated into a CEO quality function in medicine, Micheal continued to write. In all he covered over 10 wars and visited most of the 7 continents.

In 1998 Micheal entered a health care practice with Dr. John Johnson (since deceased) in Barrie Ontario. He continued to write through that time and started two other companies including an aviation firm (Specialty Air Services Inc [Class 7 Charter]) and a Private law enforcement agency which employed more and more of the publishing company's investigative reporters as print media subsided into the past, taken over by the internet. At the same time the precursor group to The RINJ Foundation was investigating rape crime which required it to have licensed investigators under Ontario law.

Following the start of the 2nd Gulf War, Micheal's era as a war correspondent ended abruptly in July 2004. He fully entered the medical field and in fall 2004 began another sojourn into academia for his Master's degree in Medical Science (Psychology) in the United States.

Inspired by what he learned wearing scrubs and nursing his second child Shane for much of the first two years of the youngster's life at Toronto Hospital for Sick Children, Micheal helped the Canadian Warplane Heritage organize annual flypasts up University Avenue past the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. He went on to work as an operations director and chief administrator of several private hospitals and surgery clinics. Micheal wrote numerous medical proposals for the government of Canada Department of Health and the Ontario regulatory sector. He helped found numerous clinics and Hospitals around the world and left the Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Clinic as its Full-Time Director of Operations in 2015 to complete his Doctoral degree in Public Health.

Micheal is a licensed Commercial Fixed & Rotary Wing Pilot since late teens early twenties and maintains a current license for both. Micheal has published eight books about the Canadian aerospace and defence industries. He is an avid Advanced Amateur Radio Operator (HAM, VE3OLG) and an honours graduate of numerous sciences courses in Canada and the USA.

Micheal served on the Board of the Canadian Young Astronauts program. He served as the President of the Toronto Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) for eight years and is currently a life member of AFCEA in the United States. He has extensive experience in the medical health field and has opened numerous successful clinics, pioneered and achieved certifications for multiple new medical facilities and medical technologies.
