He was born and raised in Southern California, where he received his B.A. in Broadcast Journalism from California State University of Los Angeles.
Following this Michael moved to Chicago, where he received his M.S. from Northwestern University, at the Medill School of Journalism.
After graduating from Northwestern in 2020, he was hired as a morning anchor and reporter in Lansing, MI; where he learned to perfect his storytelling and confirmed his love for morning news. In fall of 2022, he went to work in Portland, OR as a reporter for a short time before moving back to California.
With a passion for always wanting to know more and an eagerness to ask questions, Michael knew journalism would be his future since age 9. Over the years he has covered red carpet events, national headlines, breaking news, crime scenes, investigative stories and political issues. Michael finds comfort in being a voice for the voiceless, while bringing a positive and unique style of energy to morning news.
As a new resident to the Bay Area, he hopes to find new coffee shops, restaurants and see all that the area has to offer while seeking out stories for his community.
