Michael is a writer and an architect who, through his essays, short stories and longer works, explores the ways in which lives are forever changed by love, war and travel. His book-length project, “The Wars I Fought”, is a recollection of his experiences as a 21-year-old infantryman in Quang Ngai province, Viet Nam, and his return there forty years later, hoping to find peace among people who, like him, have led lives marked by the desolate savagery of war.
Although he believes it is important to maintain a sense of humor about life, he has found this increasingly difficult to do since November 2016.
Michael lives in Denver with Capt. Blackie, a little cat whose amazing feats have never been seen on Facebook
