Michael grew up in Dripping Springs and after graduating from The University of Texas, he met Shannon during a Tech/Texas football game in Austin. He also realized what a phenomenal place Fort Worth would be to raise a family and conduct business.
Michael and Shannon have been married for 11 years and have two beautiful daughters Berkeley and Layla. Both girls attend Trinity Valley School where Shannon is an assistant teacher. Michael established and runs the Property and Casualty division for Gus Bates Insurance & Investments.
He enjoys working for a company that is locally owned and operated, with strong family values and is committed to giving back to the community. We feel very blessed to call Fort Worth home.
