Biographical and Professional Information

Michael has led a very colorful life. After successfully leaving DePaul University prior to graduation in 1991, he held a series of terribly odd jobs ranging from the cleaning of dead chickens to the scouting of movie locations for the feature film industry. In 2000, he represented The Green Mill Cocktail Lounge at The National Poetry Slam in Providence, Rhode Island. This is his first book. He returned to DePaul and graduated in 2009.
