MichaelÂ was born in Illinois but was raised on an island in Southeast Alaska. Growing upÂ Michael always seem to be looking for that new adventure, and found out at a young age he really had an eye for photography. After high school,Â he packed upÂ his motorcycle and spentÂ the summer traveling around the United States and Canada solo, while on that tripÂ he saw all the amazing places out there and knewÂ he wanted to move South.
It didn't take long forÂ Michael to end up in Arizona whereÂ he went to college and worked for the nextÂ ten years, during that timeÂ he found himself traveling every chanceÂ he could get.Â Michael managed to do a lot of great adventures that most people could ever dream of and hereÂ he was living that dream! While traveling on his adventuresÂ he took many great photographs, and soonÂ he found himself sendingÂ his family and friends those amazing photographs over the years.
Around 2008Â he decided it was time to liveÂ his next big dream and move to a ski town in Colorado, he managed to get very lucky to land a great job that would giveÂ him lots of time off to travel.Â He thenÂ put some money down forÂ his first high-end camera and everything since then moved his photography to that next level.
One thingÂ he will never forget while he was traveling around the United States onÂ his motorcycle, itÂ wasÂ the thing thatÂ all the different retiredÂ generation would say toÂ him and that was 'Don't wait until you retire to get out and start enjoying life, enjoy every year like it's your last' so to this dayÂ he hasÂ lived by that and it sure has givenÂ him one amazing Life!
