Michael Arnold was a player at the University of Chicago and Columbia University. He frequently goes by "marnold" or variants thereof like "marhola" (originated by Kevin Olmstead and his illegible handwriting). He was on championship winning teams at ACF Nationals 2009, ICT 2010, and CULT.
Michael has been a member of some tournament-winning teams.
In 2006-2007, Michael was part of an Andrew Yaphe-led team at ELVIS.
