Hi, I'm Michael!

My life goal is to ensure every child, regardless of background, has the opportunity to become the next Malala or Elon Musk.

I currently direct outreach in North America at Minerva, a new university funded with $75MM and led by a Harvard Dean and Silicon Valley entrepreneur to reinvent higher education. Learn more about Minerva in my TEDx talk here. Previously, I worked in education at Google, TurnRight, and Noodle Education. Based in San Francisco, I volunteer weekly at a Head Start preschool.

I graduated with honors from Harvard College, where I taught 4th, 5th, and 8th graders weekly for 4 years, grew entrepreneurship at the Harvard Innovation Lab, and competed for the Varsity Men's Golf Team.

In my free time, I love reading, meditation, surfing, and dance. Occasionally, I've been known to start flashmobs in cafeterias and libraries...
