Michael grew up in rural Ohio, graduating high school in 2006. He spent a short time at the University level, choosing to take classes in philosophy and ethics, literature, and various music histories, before moving south to focus on writing. The next decade found him prolific enough, writing, recording, and releasing over 200 original songs, and self publishing three novels, and three poetry collections. He lives in Queens with his partner, Alexandra, and continues to be a student of life and love. He turns 30 next year, which pleases him greatly.
