His previous experience has been in executive and operational roles for companies in the high-tech environment. He has a Masters Degree from Denver University and a Bachelors Degree from the University of Colorado. It was in Boulder where he met his wife Nancy (together for 34+ years!). They are blessed with two daughters and their families, including four grandchildren nearby their home in Longmont CO.
Prior to joining the Product Marketing team, Michael had the privilege of working on the Marketing Events team for eight years. The role primarily focused on finding new sponsors and taking care of key partner relationships. More recently, he had been assigned to work alongside the USA Leadership team, providing a valuable opportunity to be involved in a wide variety of work.
Prior to Compassion, Michael spent four years working for a large global finance firm following eight years working for a national youth ministry. It was during his time in ministry that he met his adventure-companion and wife (Christie) of 16 years. Together, with their 9-yr. old son and 8-yr. old daughter, they love traveling, hiking, biking, and anything else that involves lakes, oceans, and trails.
