Michael is a former General Contractor, having built homes in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Like so many others, Michael's livelihood took a drastic turn for the worse during the housing market crash in 2008. Being out of work for four years, he lost most of his possessions, along with over $20k worth of tools. At 61, Michael no longer wishes to begin a new business, but thanks to a rehabilitation program, he's now completed a semester of college toward a degree in agriculture. Great job, Michael!
