Before starting a cutting-edge design + build firm, Michael played guitar full time, taught private lessons, and even spent three years as an elementary and middle school Orff Schulwerk music teacher at Key School, an independent school in Annapolis, MD. He also officiated his brother’s wedding, earning him an actual bumper sticker, “minister by day, rock star by night.”
