He attended the University of Denver where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in finance and economics. Michael currently lives in Plymouth, Minnesota with his 11-year-old son Connor. They love traveling west to ski in the winter and playing golf in the summer. Michael is the first to admit that he is a year-round critic of the Minnesota weather, yet it is a place he loves to call home.
