A pro BMX career gave way to a Merchandising career, landing Michael in a Vice President role at Alternative Apparel, leading Product and Brand functions. He created a people-first culture and his team of 28 have since elevated themselves into meaningful roles around the world.
Michael became sought after for his ability to bring order to creative environments, and offered those services as a consultant. Always punching above his weight class, he believed in surrounding himself with the best, pulling together many interesting and talented friends, and building community via introductions and advocacy.
After playing key roles in bringing superstar talent to lululemon, Buck Mason and more, Michael founded a small but high-output search firm rooted in naturally existing connections.
