He prides himself in finding solutions that aim to achieve efficiency and effectiveness in day to day operations. Aging Studies is dear to Michael’s heart having been brought up mostly by older adults. His interactions with older adults throughout his life made him realize, “it’s not only how I can be of service to them, but more importantly what I can learn from them as they have walked in my path before.”
