Other Information


Michael worked in the technology field before changing paths to follow his passion and become a history instructor. Prior to teaching, Michael also organized and led cross-country bicycle and canoe expeditions professionally. An avid outdoorsman, Michael teaches, in addition to history, outdoor leadership skills and wilderness survival techniques. Michael is always on the go and he takes this active approach right into the classroom and beyond. His students enjoy frequent field trips, re-enactments, lively discussions, intense debates, and frequent class sessions held out-of-doors. He also has an interest in meteorology and in the effect of weather on historical events. In his free time, Michael enjoys mountain biking, paddling, and Nordic and telemark skiing.
