Michael lives in Palos Park with his wife, Anne, and children Patrick and Teagan. He enjoys adrenaline and endurance activities such as scuba diving, barefoot water skiing, marathons, and construction projects (some of which feel like marathons). One of his favorite accomplishments was helping to assist with the construction of block homes in Egypt while also entering the Great Pyramid!
