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.

Old Ivy plays a...
What is the definition of Emo? Is it the musical embodiment of Hot Topic stores? Is it, perhaps, an onomatopoeia, because the word "emo" sounds like a whine? Is it a word that MTV just made up? Is it a word that people just made up? Is it even a thing? Honestly, I have no idea. I just know that...
To be a singer-songwriter is to tackle one of the most difficult genres of music out there.
