His dad has been a photojournalist in Dallas for 23 years. Seeing his dad head out to breaking news stories which included severe weather, historical events like presidential inaugurations, and catastrophic events like 9/11, and Katrina, to name a few, gave Michael a wealth of stories growing up
Michael didn't realize how much he appreciated the art of storytelling until he took a leap of faith and chose to pursue a journalism degree.
After graduating from the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas, May 2017, Michael headed west.
There, he worked in Odessa, Texas as a reporter/weekend anchor at Big 2 News for two years.
Even though Michael has made his way over to the east coast, he is not afraid to show his Dallas pride. Michael is a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan and an overall fan of every North Texas sports team: Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks, FC Dallas, and the Dallas Stars.
When he is not working out of Fayetteville, North Carolina, Michael is probably at the nearest movie theater catching the latest film or playing anything resembling a sport. He is also an avid comic book collector. You will often find him perusing a local comic book store.
One of the highlights of Michael's young life was having the honor to meet Stan Lee, an icon in the world of comics, and Michael has the photo to prove it.
