With assistance from the rest of the administrative team, Michael ensures that daily operations run smoothly and efficiently.
In his free time, he enjoys watching movies, TV Shows & sports,  gaming,  making people laugh, and dining out with family and friends. As a fan of fitness, Michael spends time outside the office performing endurance and weight training. At home, he enjoys spending time with his family and four-legged kids (two cats, one dog)
