Michael loves a good story. So much so, in fact, he's made a career exploring the power of storytelling. From his early days in theatre and performance studies in NYC to a post-graduate focus on political journalism, Michael always wanted to dive deeper into sharing stories that could make big changes. He discovered and shared groundbreaking news from around the globe and collaborated with world-renowned photographers and artists at Storehouse, Ripple, Archive Productions, The Bold Italic and Hoodline. He also encouraged the public to participate in social justice causes with The San Francisco Foundation, San Francisco City Hall, AIDS Walk San Francisco, and Partners in School Innovation. Finally, he inspired people to take control of their mental health and personal wellness as a managing editor with Eaze and Healthline. Now, as the Senior Managing Editor of AMG, Michael strives to build online publications with fantastic editors and writers who can educate and inspire millions of new viewers. A San Franciscan since 2008, Michael is also a jukebox hero, a pinball wizard and obsessed with giraffes, tinsel, haikus, and well-curated mixtapes.
