“Let’s do this.” Part motto, part mantra, this triumphant phrase comes out of Michael’s mouth several times a day as 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—he’s also a professor of web design and digital imaging at Lyndon State College.

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. He enjoys using information design to communicate and bring understanding to complex ideas. 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.
