Michael was born and raised in Washington State. He picked up the ukulele in the 5th grade and never set a stringed instrument down again. He has enjoyed earning his living playing music in one situation or another for most of his life.
In early 2010, Michael happily joined the Gruhn Guitars family at the Front Desk. He loves getting to meet all the great people that come in from all over the world on their pilgrimage to Gruhn Guitars. He loves playing acoustic guitar, clawhammer banjo, mandolin, 12-string guitar and writing and recording new instrumentals on these various instruments.
He loves his job.
