Edwards, whom has over 15 years experience in media having written bios for artistes such as Innocent Kru and Future Troubles, and interviewing public figures/personalities namely Tami Chynn, Cherine Anderson and President Bharrat Jagdeo (Guyana) among many others.

Driven by a thirst for knowledge implanted by various sources, he immersed himself in diverse forms of media from an early age. He voraciously absorbed books, magazines and newspapers, cinema, television, radio and the Internet as fast as they became available and with the continued advancement and convergence of these forms, his interest in all of them has never waned. Michael was a member of the Jamaica Cinematograph Authority for three (3) years, even briefly serving as Chairman of the board.

He parlayed these multiple interests into an equally diverse career in media, with entertainment and the performing arts becoming a specialty. From Assassin and Shaggy to the late Lou Rawls and Koko Taylor, he has interviewed a galaxy of stars too numerous to list, similarly has reviewed countless films, music CDs and live performances. (eg. JazzTimes, Inc.)

In broadcast media, he was worked as an Assistant producer for television talk shows and radio current affairs magazine programmes. He also found time to co-found the business news monthly BusinesSuite.

Armed with an inquiring mind and an eye for detail, his wife and business partner, Therese Edwards (née Morris) has carved out a diverse media career that incorporates elements of the education and visual communications fields.

In addition to her tenure as an English as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) tutor for the University of the West Indies' Latin American-Caribbean Centre (UWI/PDVSA Programme) while still a student, she has also served as writer and promotional co-ordinator in the Jamaican market for Britain's fastest growing black newspaper, The Big Eye. She also served briefly as Social Media Manager for TouchMedia (flagship company SociaLingua).
