Michael Leoni, founder of An 11:11 Experiment, has always committed himself to creating exciting material that reaches beyond the scope of traditional entertainment, challenges an audience’s beliefs, and motivates movement for positive change.
Michael made the move to Los Angeles and produced The Playground, a Rock Music-infused piece inspired by the lives of homeless kids and teenage runaways. Written and directed by Leoni, The Playground debuted on stage in Los Angeles and continued to run at least once a year for the next five consecutive years. It is now a feature film currently in development.
Founder of the organization Spare Some Change, Michael created and launched an Artistic Mentoring Program, which exposes street youth to the arts and motivates them to create change in their lives.
