Michael took an interest in balloon art as soon as he saw some of Brian's early creations. As Big Balloon Tycoon expanded, Michael stepped in to help him run the business at twelve years old in 2008. Before long, Michael learned all of the basics of balloon sculptures and also started coming up with his own designs. He took over the business while Brian went off to college.

      Currently, Michael is pursuing a degree in occupational therapy, and is very involved in extra curricular athletics outside of school.
