Michael brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in marketing and advertising to every transaction. Michael grew up in Nashville, TN. On a family ski trip out west as teen he fell in love with the Rocky Mountains and knew this was where he belonged. In the early 1990s he moved to Missoula and attended the University of Montana, earning a BA in Business and Marketing. Michael moved to Big Sky after college and then settled in Bozeman a couple of years later. He worked in broadcast media where he was a consistent top producer. With the strong client relationships he forged, Michael then founded an award winning advertising agency and Distinctly Montana magazine. His marketing firm serviced clients in numerous industries across the nation, but focused keenly on the real estate and building industries primarily in southwest Montana. His extensive experience developing marketing campaigns for these clients led to a natural transition to becoming a real estate broker. Michael is also a professional photographer specializing in architectural interiors and an FAA licensed drone pilot. When not helping clients, Michael can be found snowboarding at Bridger Bowl, camping and wakeboarding on Canyon Ferry Reservoir, fly fishing on Montana’s rivers and spending time with his three daughters.
