Michael Jaffe is an eleventh grader. He likes sports, both playing and watching, and he does cross country, basketball and baseball at DA. In his free time, he likes to mess around with computers, watch TV and movies, listen to music and play video games.

The main things he wonders about in life are whether inception is possible, whether time travel is possible, and what it would be like to be famous. He likes people with an ironic sense of humor, and he makes a lot of jokes that others do not think are funny. He always has songs stuck in his head, and this causes him to sing a lot in public.

When he goes to college, he wants to major in computer science and minor in economics. After he graduates, he wants to find a job for which he can use both of these skills. This job would preferably pay well, so he can save money for a few years and then do volunteer work for kids in other countries. Eventually, he wants to start a family. He wants two or three kids, two dogs, a fire pit at his house and a beach house that he can rent out during the year.
