In 2006, he married Debby Fradkin. Both Michael and Debby owned town homes in different Montgomery County, PA neighborhoods (North Wales and Horsham). Now faced with the challenge of combining households, they could not find a location that seemed right for building their lives together; no place seemed special enough for a second chance at life.

That is, until they discovered the beautiful and unusual Village of Skippack. In 2008, Michael and Debby bought a house in a new development in the heart of the village.

Michael now spends many wonderful afternoons and evenings walking the sidewalk through town and stopping to talk to shop and restaurant owners and workers. He have come to know many wonderful people: Musicians, homebuilders, shopkeepers, local politicians, bartenders, bar patrons, artists, actors, and craftspeople as well as helpful neighbors who also make this town their home.

Here is how Michael describes his passion for I Love Skippack:

I Love Skippack is my attempt to give something back to the town. I seek to capture and describe everyday life here; support the people who make Skippack special, and discover what one town, charming and enchanted but not without its struggles, can teach the world.
