As an undergraduate, Michael majored in History and minored in Writing at the University of Scranton. After earning a B.A. in 2008, he studied law at Temple University's Beasley School of Law, and received his J.D. in 2011. His law degree pursuit was motivated by writing interests and aims to skeptically analyze real problems. Michael is currently an Associate at Friedberg Pinkas PLLC.
Outside of the legal realm, Michael supports Philadelphia sports teams: the Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, Flyers, and Union. He is also a soccer fan, supporting Juventus, Tottenham Hotspur, and Celtic. Other interests include reading, traveling, fantasy football, and video games (FIFA and Final Fantasy franchises specifically).
Happily married, Michael spends most of his free time contributing to the NY Botanical Gardens and, during football season, cultivating his fantasy squad.
