Similar to the Fresh Prince of Bellaire, Michael was born in Philadelphia and moved to Southern California in 2005.  With a background in Restaurants he decided to give hotels a shot with the Grand Opening of Fairmont Newport Beach.  Between 2005 and 2012 he held almost every position in the hotel including, Bellman, Doorman, Concierge, Front Office, and finally Corporate Sales.  In 2012 he left Sunny Southern California to work at the Flagship Fairmont San Francisco where he was a Transient Sales Manager and now a Large Group Sales Manager.

His passion for travel took off when he was chosen to play soccer in Scotland as part of the Addidas Coerver Training Program.  Not long after, he was found sailing the Aegean and relaxing on the remote island of Alonnisos Greece where he hopes to one day retire.
