Having recently returned to San Francisco during the pandemic, Mike discovered a vastly different city from the one he left in 2017 with dramatically higher numbers of people experiencing homelessness, many of whom were unsheltered altogether. He has always been committed to the community where he lives. Wanting to turn the trajectory of homelessness around in the city after seeing it firsthand, he decided to apply his project management skills and expertise to make a positive impact on the growing issue.
Mike joins us from the construction industry where he spent the majority of his professional years managing a plethora of projects from community-based nonprofits to both small- and large-scale architectural design and construction project management. Starting his career off the coast of Maine where he managed offshore lighthouse restoration activities, he grew into residential and larger commercial construction projects in Charleston, South Carolina; Washington, DC; and San Francisco, most notably having his hand in architectural design work at the 181 Fremont Tower. Mike has acquired a diverse set of project management and technology skills that are invaluable to us here at DignityMoves.
Mike holds a Master of Science Degree in Project Management (Summa Cum Laude) from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Historic Preservation & Community Planning and Art History from the College of Charleston.
