Michael is the Southeast Regional Organizer for Mighty Earth, focusing on the rubber, fisheries and Great Apes initiatives.

Michael most recently worked as NextGen America’s regional organizing director in Wisconsin, where he led a team of field organizers who mobilized historic numbers of voters on college campuses in the successful effort to flip control of the governor’s mansion. Michael previously worked for Mighty Earth as a Green Corps organizer. In this role he spearheaded the Arkansas and Nebraska arms of the “Clean it up, Tyson” campaign, which brought about an unprecedented commitment from Tyson Foods to protect 2 million acres along its supply chain.

Michael got his start in activism while in college, where he founded and co-led the national XL Dissent initiative, which inspired four hundred young activists to face arrest at the White House fence in protest of the Keystone pipeline.

Michael graduated from Columbia in 2016, where he majored in economics and campaigned for fossil fuel divestment. In his spare time he can be found skiing, running, and performing standup sets.
