Born in Gillingham in England and raised as a child there for 10 years he has an English accent muddled with Irish slang due to living in Ireland for 21 years and both parent being Irish. He moved to Ireland when he was 10 by his parents. Being somewhat of a mischevoous rebel growing up he had a bold streak but anything trouble he got into was only a bit of fun and never harmed anyone (only himself).
At the age of 18 and finished school he worked for a forestry company which he spent a few years doing until with some collegues he opened his own forestry company aged 26.
Michael never married or had kids as his sole focus was on growing his business.
He had no major breakthrough jobs until about 5 or so years into the companys birth when he got a call from a government body of chernarus to contract work for clearing forestlands for the construction of their mines and gas facilitys. Thinking he made it big he flew to chernarus to negotiate terms of the contract when the events leading to the apocalypse occured grounding him chernarus. Outbreak happened............
