Hailing from Kitchener-Waterloo, Michael attended Conestoga College. He originally enrolled in an architecture program, but after a change of heart, he completed a construction techniques certificate instead. After a general carpentry apprenticeship, Michael earned his red seal. He gained additional renovation experience working in Waterloo before coming to London and joining the Duo Team. Michael says he enjoys many things about his job but, above all, values the team he works with. In his free time, Michael enjoys woodworking and up-cycling reclaimed material as well as escaping the city for some peace and quiet in the outdoors.
