This week’s FORZA spotlight shines bright on Michael House. Michael is originally from Chicagoland, which is another name for the Chicago, Illinois metropolitan area and not an amusement park. Perhaps some food for thought for any aspiring real estate tycoons, but I digress. He has resided off-and-on in the Phoenix metro area for the last 32 years.
Michael is a real “Michigan Man” graduating from the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture. He had spent 8 years working in the architecture industry with landscaping and urban design – all before the computer dominant era. During his stint in the architecture business, Michael had the privilege to work side-by-side with one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s protégé in Scottsdale, Arizona. As everything moved to computers, Michael became proficient at developing supporting documentation and analysis which transformed his career into data analysis and reporting.
Having been all over the place, Michael really enjoys exploring the world by car, foot and bicycle. Some of his travels entail living in seven different states and visiting three continents! Besides his thrill for travels, Michael’s interests range all over the place from photography, music, politics and baseball to maps, geography, mathematics, meteorology and housing design. In fact, his career choice in architecture was partially inspired by his last name.
In his spare time, Michael works on his house and yard and considers his home to be his proudest achievement. When he is not working on his home, Michael keeps busy walking his three dogs, listening to music or goes outside to enjoy a refreshing bicycle ride in the refreshing 120° dry-heat. Michael says that he does not mind it because he will do it purposefully just to say he did; however, the look of shock and disbelief on the faces of people driving by in their air-conditioned cars is an added bonus!
Michael has been working at MWA since early 2014 as the SAP Business One Crystal Report Developer for FORZA clients. Michael’s hard work and dedication in serving each and every single FORZA client and delivering solutions to their reporting needs has been second to none. Michael plays a very influential role in MWA’s success to provide the best customer experience imaginable.
