Michael grew up in Framingham, Massachusetts. He went to college at the University of Rochester, where he spent much of his free time cooking for friends and roommates. After graduating Michael decided to spend some time working in professional kitchens, and built a following in restaurants throughout Boston, including the Blue Room, Fava and Lumière. Michael joined Restaurant Associates in 2010 and worked at Harvard Business School and CA Technologies. Three years later he took over as Executive Chef for EF Education First in Boston. Michael doesn’t restrict his culinary style to any single cuisine. His favorite meal to cook is one where he walks into a market and makes something based on whatever looks best at the moment. He enjoys cooking for EF because the staff and students constantly challenge him to create a varied and diverse menu.

Michael currently lives in Somerville and spends his free time hiking, cycling and being outdoors as much as possible. He's an avid supporter of public food policy initiatives and sustainable food practices.
