He is energized by connecting those who share similar passions, creating meaningful experiences, and ensuring there is space for all to belong in Jewish Buffalo. Outside of the office, Mike can be found cooking savory vegetarian dishes, training for his next half marathon, or walking the Ellicott Creek bike path.
