Michael Baker

I'm a 59 year old retired software entrepreneur enjoying new adventures of all kinds. I like to travel, hike, act, write, and loaf. I love a good restaurant.

My life is a series of events gone wrong. I shudder to think what my life would have been like if it turned out exactly as I planned it.

During my many years here I have been a professional percussionist, orchestra conductor, public school music teacher, published composer, published author, factory owner, software entrepreneur, actor, filmmaker, screenwriter, producer, and crossword puzzle builder.

What I Do

Acting

I've appeared in many plays in the DFW area, as well as appeared on several TV shows and commercials. Always want to do more!

Crossword Builder

I'm a crossword puzzle fiend. I used to be able to do the airline magazine puzzle before we took off. I especially like the NY Times puzzles and I'm getting good at the hard ones on Friday and Saturday. During the pandemic quarantine I started constructing puzzles. It's even more difficult to make one than it is to complete one! Try them out - I hope you like them.

Filmmaking

When I started writing scenes for acting class, I thought some of them would make good short films. So, I learned how to make short films! You can see them on Amazon Prime, and you can see all the awards I've won on my film website: Dial it Back Films

Traveler

With my kids grown and on their own, my wife and I like to travel. We've been to Panama, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, England, Belgium, The Netherlands, and lots more places. We especially like Viking Cruises, and I even built a Viking Fan Crossword for them. They liked it, but didn't give us a free cruise.
