Michael graduated from Columbia College Chicago in May of 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Game Development with a focus in Design and Scripting.
From as far back as he can remember, Michael has been hooked on games and learning the in's-n-out's of them. Some of his fondest memories revolve around picking up his brother's SNES controller for the first time to play Mortal Kombat or the endless summer days/nights making games up on the fly with friends. Michael looks forward to passing on his passion for and knowledge of Game Design to his 3 children.
Michael has recently taught children ages 5-14 the fundamentals of coding, wrote curriculum focusing on immersive technology for Columbia College Chicago, and worked as contract programmer/designer on VR & AR projects. Currently, Michael is the Social Media Manager/Software Developer for a small family-run, woman-owned business.
