Mehow was born Michal in Warsaw, Poland, under the communist regime. (His Industry name, Mehow, is the phonetic English spelling of his Polish first name “Michal.”) His parents are both Ph.Ds, and his father was a Solidarity activist who worked as a government scientist for the United States. Under a program to rid the country of anti-communist activists, the Polish government allowed Mehow's family to immigrate to the U.S. in 1982, when Mehow was ten years old They settled in Charlottesville, Virginia, home of the University of Virginia, where Mehow later graduated as an Echols Interdisciplinary Scholar – a unique program based upon the Jeffersonian ideal of freedom of inquiry and the development of critical thought. Mehow divided his work among computer science, electrical engineering, acting, and nursing, while also devoting substantial time to search and rescue work. After an expensive divorce from a Lithuanian dancer, Mehow moved to San Diego in late 2005. He did computer work on a part-time basis for a government contractor, but despite a comfortable lifestyle he became increasingly frustrated with his lack of social life. In early 2006, he discovered the seduction world through attending a “bootcamp” taught by one of the founders up pick-up. At that time the most famous Pick-up Artist (PUA) in the world. After a series of initial failures, Mehow learned to meet and “close” with beautiful women and began to coach with some of the biggest names in the seduction community.
Soon Mehow developed his own methodology, transforming himself from a lonely computer nerd to a successful PUA with more social life than he could handle. He formed his own company, Mehow Inc. in 2006 and established a website that has developed into one of the top producing websites in the seduction business with his now long time partner Mel, while also serving as a marketing model for many sites outside the business. Among the products sold though the site are the ground-breaking How to Talk to Hot Women audio set, a DVD set called Infield Exposed, and the combined book and audio sets: Get the Girl! and Group Attraction Manifesto Volumes 1 and 2 (all copyright Mehow, Inc.) Mehow Inc. also offers a variety of boot camps, workshops, and other training opportunities, including the first instructor training program in the seduction world...producing a cadre of 50 instructors working in 20 different countries.
Mehow has become one of the most well-known Seduction in the world and is often sought after for interviews. Among his media appearances are: Current TV, Wealth TV, MTV Canada, British Cosmopolitan, Saturday Night Magazine, TSB Magazine, Young Hollywood.com, Attraction Blog, and an upcoming episode of MTV's True Life.
MCIP Director and Master Instructor
David grew up as an only child who was constantly moved from one school to another, never properly developing the normal social abilities people take for granted. By the time he hit secondary school (high school) he was painfully shy and would only associate with a small group of close friends. Eventually through social circle, shortly after leaving school, he got his first serious girlfriend at the age of 17.
However, he still walked through the world with no real ability to connect with people, even finding it hard to maintain eye contact, or hold relationships for more than a short time - especially with women.
Finally he stumbled upon the seduction community after feeling alone and frustrated for years. After a couple years in the community David primed his skills studying other methods, then David discovered Mehow's methods. After he started using these methods he was receiving results that he couldn't even fathom. David then applied for the instructor program, after going through an intensely rigorous interview process... Mehow and Mel hand picked David to join the small elite group of instructors in training because of his fervent desire to be the best.
After an extremely intense year with my coaching program, and working with Mehow directly infield. David became one of the most tenacious men to graduate from my very strenuous training regimen... as he consistently pushed the envelope, going beyond even Mehow's FIERCE expectations and eventually running the program. Now, Dave is the MCIP/ G12 director and also travels around teaching men these methods as a Master Instructor.
Faixa was a regular fat kid with no luck with chicks whatsoever growing up. In high school he was picked on and laughed at by almost everybody due to his lack of social skills. He decided he didn't want that anymore. It was not the kind of life he had imagined living as an adult, he knew if he didn't change that he would be miserable for the rest of his life, and failing in life was NOT an option.
As he decided to change, he eventually got some successes in the social field. But there was always something he couldn't quite figure out. He would eventually get girls, but he never knew why, and what he had done to make those things happen. He knew he wouldn't rest until he knew.
Later than sooner he found out about the seduction community and went through a lot of materials from a lot of different gurus, and eventually begun to understand, but it still wasn't enough, it was messy, it was not consistent. He was obsessed about figuring out what made social interactions tick - especially with girls. He eventually became a part of Mehow's team and after a long journey he finally understood what was going on and where he was not being consistent. He said once to one of our coaches "and I thought I knew something about pickup" when he had recently joined our team to become an instructor. Well he found out the rabbit hole went much deeper than he had expected.
Faixa is now a life coach helping people all over the world making sure the people he helps also get where they want to be and also don't "fail in life" as he almost did.
