About Michael and The MVRP Foundation, Inc.

Michael Vincent Rosen Pipitone was a talented actor, writer, artist and comedian whose life was tragically cut short at the age of 21 on May 25, 2015 from a side effect of medicine he was prescribed. Michael’s desire was to help to make the world a kinder place, one with joy and love. He was on a path of creating a more thoughtful place where ideas stimulate and ignite. He loved to perform and, true to the highest form of his art, he wanted to make ‘em laugh. The studying and performing Michael did at the PIT was very inspirational to him. Michael was creative, full of wit and humor that captivated and inspired all who knew him. Along with these talents, he was a young man filled with incredible compassion and insight towards others.
