Michael was born and raised in Texas. His family moved to New York when he reached his teens. There, he learned the wonders of writing and wanted to write articles for the Daily Bugle. He wrote for everything he could. While he was in middle school, they didn’t have a newspaper. He insisted one was created so he could write something for the school. All throughout middle school and high school, he wrote for the school papers. He loved writing. He went to college to obtain the higher education everyone speaks of. He loved school. College had a bigger paper and he could write even more. He started writing funny strips in the school paper. He wrote about all of the events so all of the students know what’s going on, on and off campus that’s related to one’s education. After college, Michael started his own small company that writes stories. Sometimes, his stories are published in magazines and papers. Lately, he’s been on an article kick. He likes to write informative articles; not to condescend, but to share the knowledge he learns to other people. He always liked the idea of traveling. He had wanted to travel to all of the states when he was younger, so he could see all the different things that was created in their respective areas. Though he never got to go to each state, he has been to many countries. Recently, he spoke with someone and they brought up an idea to write about the different cultures of different countries around the world. He liked the idea, but never thought he would be able to do it. It is quite expensive to travel to other countries, especially when you’re only there for a few days. He hadn’t realized that the man he was speaking with was Jimmy Quakes, one of the founders of a magazine company on the east coast of the United States. When Michael told Jimmy that he couldn’t see him doing this “job” because of the costs to fly, Jimmy responded with, “Yeah, that’s understandable. Cool, nevertheless.” A week later, Jimmy calls Michael and explains his situation and offers Michael an opportunity of a lifetime: Travel to various countries and write about the different cultures, which will be featured in his company. Michael accepted this offer.
Michael was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He had been exploring various countries for an article he's writing about the culture differences. He traveled to Chernarus by car to do research on the locals and take in the beautiful sights. When he arrived, he noticed a strange absence of people. Come to think of it, he didn't see anyone! Now, he's on a search to find people so he can find out what has happened in this country. While driving through the roads, he seen strange people standing about. He tried to communicate with them, but they just growled and attempted to attack him. He retreated to his car and quickly drove away. After a few miles, the car has broken and he’s afoot.
