Michael Wilson

Michael Wilson, originally from the Baldwin City area, started Rockstar Renovations back in 2020 as a side job. After one year, he took the leap and decided to take the business full time.

Michael has been an installer for seven years, with five years experience in home and apartment maintenance. Michael received a Bachelor of Arts in History and Sociology from Baker University. While at Baker he participated in their study abroad program at Harlaxton University in England. He was also a member in the Zeta Chi Fraternity.

Michael is also a musician, and has played in a few rock bands. He plays guitar, bass, drums, and piano. One of the main reasons as to why Rockstar Renovations got its name! Michael considers himself a "Tile Guy", but a lot of us in the office consider him an artist. Michael loves remodeling homes because it returns an older house to its former glory.
