Michael's musical interest ranges from classical music to bluegrass, electronica to metal. He is a multi-instrumentalist with years of experience in many stringed instruments, but his main proficiency is in guitar and violin. Michael has performed in a number of bands across many genres in a large number of venues across the valley - from Pickin' in the Pines to Fiesta Bowl Block Party and everything in between. He has recorded with Bob Hoag at Flying Blanket Studios and was childhood friends with Nate Ruess (of "the Format" and "Fun."). Though Michael is a hobbyist musician at this time, music has always played a key role in his life. Working for, alongside, and serving other musicians is where he is happiest. Michael joined the Sam Ash family 4 years ago as a part time band associate and hasn't looked back.
