A passion for comic books soon followed. In 2000, Michael co-founded the Eisner-award-winning comic and collectible store, Comicazi, in Somerville, MA.

Michael lives outside of Boston, MA with his wife, more books than he can possibly read, and continues writing every chance he gets. His inner 11-year-old thinks middle age isn’t all that bad.
