Born and raised in Augusta, Maine, Michael attended the University of Maine at Orono. After college he traveled the country for a few years, seeing new places and meeting people from all walks of life.
Not many people start their sales career running the beaches of Wildwood, New Jersey and Ocean City, Maryland selling photo keychains to tourists, but that is exactly what Michael did. After a few years he decided it was time to move home and join the family business.
He is happily married and living in Portland, Maine with their Pit-Pup Bella Donna.
