This transformative experience inspired his first book Rebuilt: How Becoming Part Computer Made Me More Human. He wrote about how mastering his new ear a cochlear implant enabled him to enhance his creative potential as a human being. The book won the PEN/USA Book Award for Creative Nonfiction. Michael earned his B.A. at Brown University and studied computer programming Renaissance drama and cultural theory on the way to his Ph.D. at UT-Austin.

Michael wrote the screenplay for a TV special on brain implants titled which aired on PBS in 2007. He sits on external advisory boards for neuroscience research at Northwestern and Brown.
