“The first song I ever learned on the guitar was ‘Blackbird’ by the Beatles,” says Michael. “I was so blown away when I first heard that song that I thought,‘I don’t care how long it takes, but I have to learn that song.’ And I did! That song … and many, many more.”

Michael was born in Honolulu and then lived in Waialua for some time before living in Mililani for the past 31 years, attending Waialua Elementary, then Waialua Intermediate and High and, before going to college at the University of Hawaii.
