Michael was born in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!) and moved to Grand Junction, Colorado when he was 6. He then moved to Boulder for college, receiving his Bachelor’s degree in History and Italian, and later his Master’s degree in Secondary Curriculum and Instruction from CU-Boulder (Go Buffs!) He has also served on several grant writing and planning teams to promote Project – Based Learning.  He has been teaching for years, in subjects ranging from International Relations to Chess. During that time, he has coached basketball, tennis, chess and a competitive video gaming team. In his spare time, you can find him skiing, playing tennis or basketball, or hanging out with his wife Mary and 2 daughters, Charlotte and Evelynn… and also playing nerdy video games, which he is reluctant to admit.
