Nothing is known about Michael's life before or during the outbreak. It is likely that he lived in or near Alexandria before the apocalypse.
Michael is among the townspeople to venture outside the safe-zone to help build a wall along the route in order to deter the mega herd of zombies away from Alexandria.
Michael is one of the many Alexandria residents to have been killed by the Wolves during their attack on the town.
This list shows the victims Michael has killed:
- Possibly a few zombies
As the Wolves make their way into Alexandria, Michael is one of the many residents to have been killed. His body is seen laying in the street and is later collected by Tobin and Bruce to be buried.
- While never credited, the actor confirmed on his Facebook that he was killed in "JSS" and his name was written on the wall in "Now".
- Michael, along with Stacy, were filmed fleeing from the Wolves, but the scene did not make the final cut.
