Michael is a strategic infrastructure specialist with over 20 years of project management and owner’s representation experience in integrated design and construction disciplines. He’s worked with public, private, and institutional clients locally and internationally.
Currently, he’s focused on a 25-floor research tower for Memorial Sloan Kettering on the edge of Manhattan’s East Side, a project that requires a careful balance between community integration and the needs of a cancer research program.
Before joining Stantec, Michael was the director of Planning and Urban Design for a British-based P3 consulting engineering firm helping to build the firm’s North American headquarters. Michael was also instrumental in the redesign of Times Square as a Design Trust for Public Space Fellow, and he’s worked city-wide on many of New York’s most significant projects, from Columbia University and Brooklyn Museum master plans to Con Edison’s 14th Street repowering project.
When he’s not working, Michael teaches resilient infrastructure planning at Columbia University for the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. He also conducts virtual field trips in Google Earth for his children’s elementary and junior high school classes.
