Born in San Diego and raised in Florida, Michael grew to appreciate the ocean deeply. This changed when he moved to Munich but the Bavarian Alps are a suitable substitute for the Atlantic Ocean. Like many here, he enjoys hiking, biking and swimming during the 6-week long summer. He has diplomas in History and English literature. Michael gives lectures at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München on English writing skills, English grammar and American culture.
He has lived in Munich for nearly two decades, the last 12 years with his wife. They have an eight-year-old daughter who speaks German and English equally. Michael does not. He hopes to (at some point) learn German, but is convinced Oscar Wilde was correct when he said, “Life is too short to learn German.”
