At 16 Michael knew he wanted to be a teacher. His goal was to retire with a Mr. Holland's Opus style send-off. But life has different plans for all of us. After 3 years in the public schools, state budget cuts caused Michael to find a different career. With a passion for learning and breaking down complex concepts, Michael has gained experience in a variety of areas: Professional Development, Economic Development, Non-Profit Management, Telecommunications Sales, Project Management, Real Estate, SaaS Product Development, and Product Management.
In 2018 Michael started the Central Washington Real Estate Investment Meetup to educate investors looking to build passive income. This group became an Affiliate of Fixated On Real Estate in 2019. After celebrating 2 years of monthly networking and programs, Covid hit. In order to find some way to keep the investors in his group motivated, Michael started Dissecting The Deal as a virtual meetup supplement.
