He graduated from Weslaco High School in 2010. Michael's passion for media started at a very young age with the love of meteorology and news. His passion for media would lead him down a path to the greatest dream he could never have imagined. He freelanced for WHS by filming, taking photos of sports events and other high school functions. After graduation Michael worked briefly for the local news station as a News Editor but, his heart was set on bigger opportunities, he moved back to the DFW area. DFW was a place where he knew he could embark in full scale media ventures. His passion led him to work for UAN Entertainment as an Artist Manager, JKruz 97.9 The Beat DFW as a General Manager, Interactive Digital Media Specialist and The Beat Rochester 105.5 Head of Digital Communications.

Michael will be best remembered as a person who was talented, independent, focus driven and willing to help anyone who crossed his path. His work ethic was impeccable, and his selfless acts did not go unnoticed. He was loved by many and yet gone to soon.
