Michael started his writing career in 2007 as a staff writer at Medium, a health- and lifestyle magazine.

Shortly thereafter, he was named editor-in-chief at Pink Planet, a free, culture guide for the gay community in Oslo. Michael revamped the magazine and expanded its distribution. This made Pink Planet available for readers in four major cities in southern Norway.

As readers turned to online publications, Michael started freelancing for Gaysir, Norways biggest gay web site. From 2010 to 2014, he wrote about Oslos culture- and entertainment scene. For two years, also at Gaysir, he edited a weekly column about gay rights issues.

After a three year hiatus, Michael made a comeback to the world of music and media. On May 31st 2017, he launched Coverstory, a blog about pop, rock and hip hop.
