Biography

Michael Williams, Jr., 29, was born and raised in Alaska. Michael says, “I grew up mushing out of the remote village of Akiak. My dogs are prime Alaskan huskies and proven Iditarod veterans. I could not do this without the continued support of my sponsors and the endless support of my family. And most of all, I want to thank God!” Michael graduated from the Galena Charter School and attended the Alaska Vocational Technical Center in Seward for a year and FMCT, studying carpentry. He is now doing commercial fishing as well as dog mushing.
