Michael comes from a family of writers, so you could say writing’s in his blood. He’s written songs, novels–even children’s books. Yet he’s fascinated by the hi-tech industry and its amazing ability to enhance our lives everyday, whether it’s in improving education for students or liberating businesses to accomplish more. According to him, “Technology isn’t something that controls human beings, human beings control technology. It serves us, and has the ability to make life easier and enable us to do things we’ve never done before.”

Michael is a natural when it comes to translating the admittedly complex geek speak and tech talk into real life issues and relatable stories that influencers can understand—and find exciting. Working directly with thought leaders in technology and education, Michael is committed to not only helping MSR Communications clients grow market share, but also helping to explore how their industries can better serve the community and the public good. Not surprisingly, his heroes are Captain America and Iron Man. But that’s another story.
