Here is a bit of information about him:

Hometown: Des Moines, Iowa, USA, Earth

Hobbies: Certified fitness instructor. I teach everything from yoga to spinning to circuit. I love to travel (thank God, since it’s a big part of my job).

Interesting facts: I’ve won 8 Emmys. I have a freakish, irrational fear of horses. (Problematic when you work on the Plaza, which is famous for its horse drawn carriage rides.)  I’m a shrimp scampi and pecan pie aficionado. And I nearly dropped dead from a stroke when I turned 40. (I’ve recovered nicely.)

Favorite part of the job: Getting to know each of the Ambassadors and Champions and working with the new Ambassadors to get them up and rolling.

We’re thrilled to welcome Michael to the VPR POP Team!
