Michael joined The Escapist as a news reporter back in 2019 but has been covering games, movies, TV and music since 2015. He spends most of his time on the news team, but his name certainly comes up in the news team opinion and interview sections from time to time. From the obscure indie games to the AAA industry giants, there’s nothing Michael doesn’t want to get involved in. The vast majority of Michael’s work can be found at The Escapist, but his bachelor’s degree in multimedia journalism has led him to other sites such as OnlySP, Gameranx, and Kansas City-based The Pitch. When he’s not writing, Michael is probably playing Super Mario Sunshine, Dead Space, or The Binding of Isaac.
