Michael has been an entrepreneur since the 6th grade, when he co-founded the dominant candy and gum supplier at Jefferson Middle School. Despite his background in candy distribution, his professional experience is mostly in the technology and entertainment industries. Michael is the Co-Founder of Austin-based media network DoStuff Media. He earned his B.A. in psychology at Harvard, his MBA in marketing and entrepreneurship at the University of Texas, and his actual business knowledge at C3 Presents, where he helped build the company from a 10-person local concert promoter into the largest independent event company in North America.
Organizational culture's impact on organizational results has been a source of fascination, passion, and frustration for Michael at every step in his entrepreneurial journey. He has enjoyed indulging that fascination as the Curator of the Culturati Summit.
