Michael was born on a farm in southern Indiana and raised in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. He graduated from the University of Kentucky (Go Wildcats! ) with a bachelor’s in chemistry. After graduation, he moved to Hilton Head “for the summer.” Michael is married and has three beautiful girls; a twelve year old and twin two year olds. Michael calls James Island home now. When giving the opportunity, he enjoys time on the Lowcountry’s beautiful waterways. He enjoys exploring James Island County Park, whether it is on bicycles, walking behind a stroller, or on the stand up paddle board. He and his wife take pleasure in Charleston’s rich culinary scene, preferably without the kids!
