Michael joined the Shaw Design team in 2018. Originally from 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 an 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 the “smartest” and most sustainable building.
Outside of the studio, Michael enjoys meeting new people and exploring new places with his wife, Kori, and two rescue dogs, Riggins and Sadie.
