Michael is a native of California living in Fishers, Indiana, near where he grew up in Indianapolis. Married to his high school sweetheart Natalie, Michael is the Director of Corporate Project Management at DK Pierce & Associates in Zionsville, IN.
Michael loves music. A 2008 graduate ofÂ Ball State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education (see hisÂ teaching portfolio), Michael primarily plays trombone, but also drums, bass, guitar, and some of most other wind and percussion instruments. Currently, he plays regularly with the Director’s Jazz Orchestra.
Natalie and Michael adopted a six-year-oldÂ Lhasa Apso in July 2010:Â Yogi. Neither Natalie nor Michael grew up with legged pets, and so it has been a learning experience, but a very fun and rewarding one. (And no, he’s not trimmed like the ridiculous show Lhasas. He has a “puppy” or “teddy” trim.)
