A Brit claims he's been abducted by aliens multiple times and has been made their point of contact for humankind.
The 45-year-old forklift truck driver has alleged he's been communicating with those from outer space ever since he was a toddler.
In the 80s, Michael sketched an alien figure on a piece of paper which he believes first prompted the communication between him and extraterrestrial life.
He recalled: "My earliest memory of an alien is when I was just a child, I can remember is feeling something stroke my head, I thought it was my mother but when I opened my eyes I was shocked and terrified it was a creature, a grey alien sat where my mother should have been!
"As a young lad I could not grasp what I had experienced, I originally thought the things that had come to me in my room and called me to the garden must have been wildlife that I had not seen before.
"But I eventually realised that I had been chosen and there was a very clear campaign by the visitors to get to me."
Michael thinks aliens were encouraged to make further contact with him when he put 'a small action figure of E.T.' on his windowsill 'facing outward into [his] garden'.
"I realised years later, after undergoing hypnotic regression, that I had deliberately put E.T there for my nocturnal visitors. I also found out that it had the desired effect and they had found the figure amusing," he said.
Despite finding it 'very difficult to remember' the details of exactly what happened, the 45-year-old claims he was once 'dragged up to a spaceship by a light beam'.
"On one occasion, I woke up in the early hours, completely paralysed. I could see the blue light under my bedroom door and shadows in the hall. The last thing that I remember was seeing three grey aliens and the lead grey thrust his hand up into my face," he said.
The 45-year-old has since moved on from using drawings to communicate with aliens - eerily reminiscent of Henry Creel's drawings in Stranger Things - and is now using another medium in the form of his cat, Meg.
He recalled an experience where he was 'only partially awake' in 'the middle of the night' and saw Meg in 'a dream'.
"She was telling me that there was someone in the garden and that they wanted to speak to me. I vaguely remember climbing out of bed and walking downstairs to see what she was talking about.
"I told Meg that there was no one there, but then she told me to look under the cherry tree at the bottom of the garden. I did as she told me and as I watched, two grey aliens materialised before my eyes," Michael said.
Michael believes it's not only him who has been contacted by aliens, but other members of his family too, after his mother told him she'd seen bright lights and ghosts.
However, his wife isn't convinced and has banned Michael from talking about aliens in the house.
While he's not allowed to discuss his otherworldly experiences, Michael has since written a book and has a whole host of sketches of his alleged abductors.
Although, the 45-year-old noted it will 'always be a mystery' why aliens chose him to be their human point of contact.
He concluded: "I believe that it has something to do with the fact that where I grew up was so isolated there would be no witnesses to the abduction, but they have never told me why."
