Growing up south of the Motor City, in Ohio, Michael fell in love with the grace and beauty of cars, which spurred his affinity for design at a young age. He attended the College for Creative Studies in Detroit where designers and fine artists study under high-level professionals. After developing his skills as an Industrial Designer in the Motor City, he exchanged it for the Windy City of Chicago where he has made his professional carrier. Working in Chicago, Michael has gained experience in packaging design, housewares, and electronics. He soon helped Mark Dziersk with design, branding, and all sorts of odds and ends to land LUNAR in the River North area of downtown Chicago. After having great success with the launch of LUNAR, Michael became employee number 2 as a full time Industrial Designer. On the weekends you can usually find him golfing, biking around the city, or keeping up with his photography.
