Michael was born and raised in Des Moines, so when he is not in the office, Michael can usually be found running at Gray’s Lake, grabbing a cone at Van Dee’s, enjoying one of the many patios in the metro area, or playing “catch” with his dog, Drake. Catch is in quotation marks because Drake usually only lasts 2-3 tosses before he becomes bored and runs away or he destroys the flying object altogether.
In the fall and winter months, Michael can usually be found cheering on UNI athletics, the Des Moines Buccaneers at the Madhouse on Hickman or his Minnesota Wild in the Excel Energy Center. When he has extended free time, you’ll have to look outside the state as he frequently takes trips to go snowboarding with his brother in Colorado.
