Michael was born and raised in Hebron, Kentucky, the youngest of six siblings. At the age of 19, he moved to Atlanta where he attended community college with the goal of transferring to the University of Georgia. In 2014, he transferred to UGA to study animal science. Michael quickly realized animal science was not the career path he wanted to take. After researching options, he took a personal finance class and enrolled in UGA’s financial planning program. Michael graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Financial Planning and was recently featured by UGA's financial planning program in a video promoting financial planning as a career.
When not working, Michael enjoys the outdoors, working out, reading, repairing/doing projects on vehicles, traveling and visiting new places in Atlanta.
