Michael joined the Shaw Design team in 2018. Originally from Middle Granville, New York, he graduated from Keene State College with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture in 2014.
Michael's passion for the field began in high school when he began working for a construction company getting hands on experience with each discipline. Working in the field taught him how to visualize not only a design, but how everything is constructed.
After graduation, he worked for a custom residential Architecture firm in Saratoga Springs, NY where he developed a high regard for sustainable design. There is an art to balancing the client's wants and needs, upholding correct Architectural aesthetics, understanding and delivering a design within a budget, and developing a “smart” and sustainable building.
Outside of the studio, Michael enjoys game nights with friends and exploring new places with his wife, Kori, and two rescue dogs, Riggins and Sadie.
