After his MIT, Michael worked in New York City architecture firms both small and large for 16 years before moving to Glasgow in 2019 for the weather. For 14 years he has been project manager and associate leading from start to finish a variety of projects types from residential, workplace, to award-winning boutique and 5-star hotels, and restaurants. His experience, work ethic and thoroughness give him a great knowledge base in all parts of the process that have resulted in many projects from repeat clients.
