Michael W. Dean was a handful at a very young age. He tested extremely high on aptitude tests, but was asked to leave his public school due to his very vocal dislike of authority figures. (Examples here, here, here, here and here.) He was later kicked out of the private all-boys Church Farm School for calling the headmaster names. Michael flunked out of Jamestown Community College because he skipped too many classes “so I could go to the library and actually learn something.”He sang in the hardcore punk band Right Arm of Wyoming. He lives and works at Intergalactic Prairie Studios in Wyoming.
