Michael loves concerts and beer, but he hates waste!
He got his career CUPstarted working in the waste industry in NYC. After years of trying to get everything recycled he came to dead end after dead end. He realized the only real path to sustainability was making less waste in the first place. He loves to educate people on the underground world of recycling and composting (see his Ted X talk here ) and will gladly talk trash over a zero waste coffee or beer.
He is usually the first person on the dance floor or in the water. He surfs, forages, and makes a few too many dad jokes.
