Michael left Parish Episcopal School after 8th grade to continue pursuing academic excellence at Jesuit. He loves to write; writing is his choice form of artistic expression, because there is nothing like reading meaningful words on paper. He also loves listening to all kinds of music (except country) and loves to share his passion with others, hence his participation in the Roundup. He likes lacrosse, reading, playing drums and serving the community. He also runs a music blog with fellow Juniors Jon Birondo, Drew Curran and Chris Ayres called Pretty Neat Grooves.

Above the checkered-walled unisex bathroom in Webster Hall in New York City, neon signs provided the sole source of light in a dark bar. The place looked abandoned, almost completely vacant and very gloomy. It's macabre tone weighed down on the eyelids of Dylan Walker, vocalist of Full of Hell, noisy patrons of "artsy grind core." The band closed out...
Flares Sickening Joy Album Review Unsigned Released August 30, 2014 Genre: Post-Rock, Black Metal (occasionally), Post-Metal, Space Rock Flares is a brand-spanking new post-rock group, fresh out of North Texas. Post-rock can be a derivative genre, but Flares put in the extra effort to make something that transcends the usual style. With a minimal amount of fluff (superfluous effects, random instrumentation, etc.), Flares have taken us on a...
