Michael was seventeen and went to Legacy High School in Bismarck, North Dakota, USA. His father, however, lived in Rosamond, California, USA.
Michael had been doing Motocross since a very young age and his only other interests were participating in BMX and skateboarding. Michael was also mechanical, and wanted to be either a welder or a mechanic when he completed High School.
Michael was a really great guy. I was making action shots of his incredible stunts (see below) and was amazed to see that he was so young when he took his helmet off. It was just such a pleasure being around someone who was so stable and knew exactly what he wanted in life.
