Michael had an incredible and vast intelligence. He was referred to as the "brain trust" by his colleagues in the Delaware State Bar. He had an eclectic love of music, particularly Balkan music. He played many instruments, but loved playing the balalaika and pipe organ most. He loved to travel all over the country and the world, Iceland and the Republic of Georgia were two of his favorite places to travel, but the place he loved more than any other was his hometown of Erie.
