Michael Goodliffe, Jr

Biography

Michael Goodliffe was born in Winnipeg, Canada, where he was raised by a pack of wild hippies. He has since traveled the world seeking knowledge, wisdom, love, and happiness, finding all four, and more.


To perfect his writing skills, and create a knowledge base to draw from, Michael completed an Associate English degree at Camosun College in Victoria, Canada before going on to continue his studies at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. Michael studied at UBC for six years, completing a double major in International Relations and English Literature. The focus of the International Relations degree was human rights issues related to Middle Eastern Conflict, and the focus of the English Literature degree was creative writing.

Michael has also been certified in Conflict Resolution with a degree from the Justice Institute in Vancouver, Canada, and he is a certified Community Support Worker, with that degree earned at Malaspina College, in Duncan, Canada. Michael's mom thinks Michael has “more degrees than a thermometer” and should be earning way more money than he presently does. Michael agrees wholeheartedly.
