About Me

Michael was born and raised in Corning, New York.  His youth was filled with the intense joys of his close knit family. His father taught him many skills that he still uses today. Above all his Dad gave him an appreciation for hard work and working with his hands. His mother made sure he knew how to cook, clean and even sew.  They gave him a sense of always being there to help others within the community, and the ability  to be self sufficient at anytime during his life.

    During his teens, Michael passionately enjoyed photography. Leading him to seek an education in photography.  Receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Commercial Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California.

    His first major job out of college was a studio manager for a Dallas based Anheuser Bush subsidiary company, Campbell Taggart. Being the second largest bread company in the United States at that time, Michael was afforded the opportunity to organize and coordinate a wide range of photography projects. This allowed him to interface with many levels of employees throughout the company. He worked for Anheuser Bush for over 13 years, until becoming an independent contractor in the Dallas/Ft, Worth Area.

    He has worked for over 20 years in the “creative business” as a commercial/advertising photographer, studio manager, project manager, rental manager and producer. Over the course of his career, he has worked closely with many levels of people ranging from corporate CEO’s to production level personnel. He works well independently, or in a team environment whichever is required.

    Michael and his wife Cheryl live in Irving, Texas. They have two children, Michael II and Amy. Michael II is currently attending the University of Texas at Arlington, working towards a degree in Aerospace engineering. Their daughter Amy is a sophomore, attending the Academy of Irving.

    Recently, Michael discovered the world of Professional Organizing. His previous career paralleled Professional Organizing, as he has always worked in one way or another to organize his many customers and their businesses. He has always enjoyed working with people and assisting them to achieve their desired goals and accomplishments. Organizing is definitely is a natural fit for his new endeavor.

    While working as a Professional Organizer, Michael realized that he wanted a strong and unique name for his business. In 2007 he developed the website and concept of MrOrganizerAndMore. This allows him to showcase his skills not only as a Professional Organizer but also the multitude of skills he has gained over the course of his lifetime.

    Michael is a member of National Association of Professional Organizers, and also a member of its Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter. He currently is NAPO-DFW’s Treasurer and publishes their newsletter.
