As an artist, designer, and facilitator, Michael sees community development and cultural production as essential transformative tools for reimagining and remaking our communities and our world.
Before joining the Invest STL team, Michael played a pivotal role in growing Continuity’s media training program and heading up the Nine Network’s Nine Lab. His work has taken place in the non-profit, arts, education, wellness, and community engagement spaces with an emphasis on communities, populations, and individuals in greater need.
Residing in the Tower Grove East neighborhood, Michael can often be found strolling, jogging, and dancing his way through Tower Grove Park. Live music, art exhibits, and large social gatherings used to fill his weeks. These days he is content making art at home, reading non-fiction, cooking, and occasionally spinning some vinyl on a Sunday afternoon.
