Bio: After running away from home at a young age, Michael was raised by a kindly grizzly bear who taught him how to hunt salmon and discuss Aristotle. He is still getting used to life in the city, and is consistently disappointed when he can’t find caribou sausage in the supermarket. When he isn’t dancing ‘interpretively,’ Michael regales us with stories from his life on the Alaskan tundra. Michael was the inspiration for Disney’s 'Frozen' and James Cameron’s 'Titanic'.
