Michael has been in partnership with Brian Friend since 2014. He served previously as a Systems Engineer and Facility Operations Watch Officer at the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.

He has built his roofing industry skills through OJT and great mentoring, but has acquired his relationship-building and communications skills through his previous careers in the U.S. Air Force, in aviation sales, and as a professional with the Boy Scouts of America. His true passion, besides his family, is being a blogger, budding novelist, and a children’s book author.
