Michael is an outdoors enthusiast, and this is his first season working with Sockeye Cycle. His previous guide experience took place in the Caribbean, working for 3 months on sailboats and instructing people how to sail. Travelling and working around the US, Michael frequently would take friends to hard to reach places in the mountains of Glacier National Park, Montana, and around California's Sierra Nevada range. He is professionally trained as a chef at Johnson and Wales University, but has put that career aside for now to spend time in the great outdoors. Alaska has always been a place he has dreamed of going, so Michael made the trek north to Skagway in April, the perfect place to spend the summer on his bicycle.
