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.org and Noodle. 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 four years, grew the entrepreneurship community at the Harvard Innovation Lab, and competed for the Varsity Men's Golf Team.

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