Michael earned his Master degree in City and Regional Planning at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He recently moved to San Luis Obispo from Puerto Rico where he worked with the San Juan National Park Service. There he organized and participated in multiple beach and trail cleanups. Michael was born and raised in Philadelphia receiving his undergraduate degree at the University of Pittsburgh but eventually got sick of the long, bitter cold winters of the east coast. He thought San Luis Obispo would provide a welcome relief—and it has! Michael is passionate about creating better communities and is excited to work for ECOSLO!
