Michael was born in Austin, Texas, but grew up in Garland, a suburb of Dallas. He is the oldest of three sons, and he had the joy of always being surrounded by a myriad of behind the scene stories about the local and national news. His dad has been a photojournalist in Dallas for 25 years. Seeing him  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. After that, he took a leap of faith and spent two years in the wonderful state of North Carolina, telling countless stories in the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg area for ABC 11. 

Now, he's happy to be back in the city that he loves the most, Dallas. 

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, 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 he has the photo to prove it.
