Michael has been involved in organizing work since early high school. Recently, he's devoted his efforts to dismantling the disproportionate, distortional power of the fossil fuel industry.
While it's worth noting that Michael is available for hire to do all manner of campaign work, including media, communications, and strategy work, the core of his activism and resistance work has never been and will never be for profit of any kind. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need general assistance with a campaign that you think fits with Michael's theory of change and do not have a way to compensate him financially for his work. Michael lives and breathes system change, and will do everything in his power to help.
