A native to Fowlerville, Michigan, Michael attained his bachelor's degree from Cornerstone University in 2016 and continued his education pursuing his master's degree at Central Michigan University. Prior to joining the CISMA, Michael worked a variety of seasonal and full-time jobs conducting bird research and native plant restoration throughout the Midwest.

 

Under the guidance of the steering committee, Michael leads the strike team invasive species management efforts, engages the partner network, plans workshops and events, provides outreach materials, manages the CISMA social media accounts, and pursues funding opportunities for CISMA activities.

 

Beyond the CISMA, Michael enjoys exercising, hiking with his wife,  spoiling his pets, and fishing the pristine waters of the Midwest. If you see Michael out in his natural habitat of the woods or rivers of the U.P., be sure to say hey!
