Born in the inner city of Dublin, Joseph had a gift of musical talent from the start. He played the keys, mostly jazz, and was doing gigs at the age of 16. When his father thought he was old enough, he told him about the organization he was in, the IRA. Michael had an interest in it, but kept it more of a secret and didn't talk about it much around his peers. As Michael progressed as piano player, he got offered to play in a wedding in South Zagoria with some of his pals. He ended up liking the place and came back a few more times over the next couple of years to play at different events. When he came in spring of 2017, he got caught in all of the mess that was Chernarus at the time, and ended up becoming stranded there as no help was able to save the turmoil that was the country. He joined the IRA present in Chernarus and works with them till this day.
