Michael was born in Downey, CA, July 12, 1955, moved to Whittier, CA, and then to Gridley, CA for one year with his parents at the age of ten. They lived on his uncle's ranch which fostered his lifelong passion for the outdoors. He moved back to Whittier where he graduated from high school.

He entered the U.S. Navy Seabees in 1977 and was stationed in Port Hueneme, CA, Japan, the Indian Ocean and Greece.
