Michael was born and raised in the Mill Grove area. He loves learning new things and doing outdoor activities. Michael went to Gettysburg College and has a degree in both History and Business. He is able to put both of these degrees to use running the new Center and Historic House Museum. A martial arts expert, he enjoys helping students find confidence and bettering themselves. When not on site, teaching, or training, his favorite thing to do is travel. He has been all around the world and even lived in Japan. After years of working in the business world, Michael decided to change things up and work somewhere he could make more a difference in people's lives. He started at the John James Audubon Center as a volunteer working with Conrad the Blue Jay and other educational birds. Michael has been glad to be a part of the official Audubon team since day one.
