Michael was born and raised in Washington State. After living in California, Oklahoma, Texas, and California, again, he and his family relocated to Nashville with the Witless Protection Program in 2002.
In early 2010, Michael happily joined the Gruhn Guitars family at the front sales counter. He loves getting to meet all the great people that come in from all over the world on their holy pilgrimage to Gruhn Guitars. His current musical love is Clawhammer Banjo.
He loves his job.
