A creative problem solver, Michael has spent his career passionately advocating clean, smart and bold design for companies of all shapes, sizes and budgets. With a broad client base, he has designed for many business sectors including: medical, legal, financial, entertainment, event, fashion, retail and nonprofit. He advocates that design must be articulate, intelligent, versatile, cohesive, inspiring and accessible. 

Michael holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Columbia University in New York City.  While at Columbia, he started his design career after he received a prestigious departmental research grant to design and brand the School of the Arts theatre seasons. Michael is also a graduate of New York City's Parsons School of Design design-certification program.

In 2016, Michael moved MightyDesignStudios to Hawaii to pursue his lifelong desire to live within walking distance of the beach.  He currently lives in Waikiki (three blocks from the beach!) and when not designing, exploring the islands of Hawaii, or swimming in the ocean, he can be found practicing Bikram yoga at his favorite local studio.
