For more than 37 years, Michael has been a consultant in architectural acoustics and vibration, mechanical system noise and vibration control, environmental noise assessments, and electronic sound system design. He earned his Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington.

So what does he love most about his work? The variety. His team works on over a hundred projects a year, and they range from performing arts and K-12 schools to residential and office buildings. Recently Michael worked on the Vashon Allied Arts project, a new performing arts center for Vashon Island, Washington. It seats about 325 and has an emphasis on music, but it also accommodates drama.

With all of those different work opportunities, Michael says that sometimes “we have to stretch our own understanding of our discipline to find the right solution for a project.”

When he’s not at work, Michael spends nearly all of his free time with his family, which includes three grandchildren, so he gives it freely (most of the time). When he has the opportunity, he loves to golf.
