Michael’s Background

I was born at Holloman Air Force Base outside of Alamogordo, New Mexico. My father was a career Air Force Photographer and taught me. I was a photographer in college and then moved to radio and then television production. I have mixed a love of media with a love of education, having taught at Albuquerque High School, Dona Ana Community College, and the NMSU College of Education. I have a Ph.D. in Educational Administration with a focus on Distance Learning. From a lifelong enjoyment of Chile, I am happy writing and talking about Chile.
