I help people and companies achieve what matters to them through design, production, and education.

Hi, I'm Michael. I enjoy helping make a difference for people. Professionally I seek to design and produce the most effective possible systems for the specific application at hand.

My experience includes working as a project engineer, architectural documentary screenwriter, a school program leader, an author on book tour, a meditation teacher, a retreat center brand manager, and a computational research analyst.
