Michael was born and raised in Bennington, Vermont which is where he still resides today with his family. Michael was introduced to hunting and fishing at a very early age by his father, grandfather and uncle. Over the years Michael’s passion for hunting and fishing has taken him all over the U.S. and Canada. He has equal passion and respect for the men and women who protect us and this country by serving in the military.
In 2013 Michael and his wife Debi put together a fundraiser through their place of employment (Unicorr Packaging Group) and raised just under $23,000 for WWIA. Michael has since formed the Vermont Chapter of WWIA. His two passions have now become one and he considers it an honor and a privilege to continue his efforts through the WWIA to help provide hunting and fishing experiences for this countries genuine heroes.
