From the Program Book of the 15th IAGSDC Convention, held in Portland, OR in 1987:
Michael began his calling career in the summer of 1993 shortly after attending his first callers school. Since then he has been the club caller and instructor for the Rosetown Ramblers in Portland, Oregon. In 1995 he began calling for the C-Dogs, a C-1/C-2 club also in Portland. He is now proficient at all levels from Basic up to and including C-2 and enjoys the variety of all the levels. Michael has been a guest caller at various weekends from coast to coast in the USA and as far north as Canada. He has left his mark on the square dance world with his keen attention to detail and choreographic definitions. His creativity is evident at every level and you will never be bored at any dance that Michael is calling.
