Michael Fieber Former Staff

Michael is a senior and the news editor for the Bark. He learned a lot last year about how to be a Barkie and now strives to be the best one the program has ever had. In addition to his multitude of jobs as News editor, Michael enjoys sports and watching the San Francisco Giants lose. Even though he has never in his life gone to a Redwood sporting event that he hasn't participated in, he hopes to broaden his horizons this year and learn how to have fun. He also secretly prides himself on being the only person he has ever met who doesn't have a Facebook.
