Outdoor Interests

He frequents the mountains in Western Canada, Colorado, Utah, and areas near his home in Ontario and Upstate New York. He is a member of the North American Snowsport Journalist Association (NASJA).

Kitesurfing is one of Michael's more recent passions. Seeing the kitesurfers racing across the water one afternoon, he decided to take lessons and devote himself to learning the sport. Travel for the next couple of years involved finding destinations where he could kite. Colombia, Dominican Republic and North Carolina topped the list.
