Meet The Oak Creek Team

Meet Our General Manager

Mike Silenzi

Mike is a 9 time American Ninja veteran and 6 time Las Vegas finalist. His nickname on the show is “The Stallion” and he can be seen on season 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13 and the most recent season, 14, where he galloped his way to Vegas.

Michael grew up a competitive gymnast and by the age of 12 was ranked 37th nationally. In high school he made varsity as a freshman for pole vaulting and for fun was involved in a breakdancing group. He transitioned into ninja warrior training during college at Northern Illinois University where he earned his master’s degree in Physical Therapy. “I currently supplement my obstacle training with rock climbing and water sports including slalom skiing, bare-footing, and wake boarding.”

Michael hopes to grow the ninja community and promote the “NINJA LIFESTYLE” which involves being active, eating healthy, treating people kindly, and doing the right thing. “Competing on TV gives me a platform to be a role model. Whether I complete an obstacle or fall in the water I measure my success based on if I can make a positive difference in someone’s life.”

Meet Our Oak Creek Coaches

Nathan & Marquez Green

Nathan and Marquez are 4 time American Ninja Warrior Veterans and are known as “The Twinjas” on the show. They can be seen on seasons 11, 13, 14, and 16

Nathan and Marquez ran cross country and track in high school and were on varsity all four years with multiple WIAA state meet appearances. In college, they continued their running endeavors through the Wisconsin Track Club at The University of Wisconsin-Madison where they both earned Bachelors of Science degrees in Community and Nonprofit Leadership.
Nathan and Marquez started their ninja journey in college when they went out on a limb and applied for the show in 2019, and have been hooked ever since. They are also professional obstacle course racers and are ranked as some of the top American racers.
Nathan and Marquez compete on the show in honor of their mom who lost her 11 year battle to breast cancer back in 2012. They hope that by their efforts, they can be role models to others and show that you can overcome losing a parent and go on to achieve your wildest goals!
