Whether he’s constructing a database system, engineering with salvaged electronics, coding a website, or navigating a trail map with his family—if it’s involved and intricate, Michael will know the best way to get it done. This proficient developer has a rare talent for design and a following of protégés from his days as a professor of web design and digital imaging at Lyndon State College. He enjoys using information design to communicate and bring understanding to complex ideas.

Clients in his roster include Anichini, AIGA, Autumn Harp, Champlain College, National Science Foundation, Sony Computer Entertainment, and the Woodstock Inn, to name a few. If he’s not in the office, Michael might be out building and racing drones. And when he wants to give his brain a rest you’ll find him hiking the Greens with his growing family.

Michael graduated with Highest Honors, BFA Graphic Design, Rochester Institute of Technology.
