Michael has been covering entertainment since long before everyone had a podcast. Having started with Across the Airwaves Productions in 2010, he reviewed a variety of television shows and feature films in the sci-fi/fantasy, horror, and western genres. Though the podcast network dissolved in 2017, he continued to write and podcast about the entertainment industry. In 2012, he started as a Staff Writer for the Superman Homepage, where he'd remain for nearly a decade. Along with writing about his favorite stories, he also writes stories of his own, including screenplays, teleplays, and an upcoming short story called "The Beast of Bear-tooth Mountain." Michael's written work on the entertainment industry has also appeared on Superhero Movies News, Next Luxury, Collider, and now Looper.


Michael has a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Photography from Montana State University, specializing in film production and screenwriting.
