Michael is a transplant from Ohio, where he earned a BS in Chemical Engineering before embarking on a career dedicated to Health, Safety and Environmental Engineering. He joined the Oregon Spirit Distillers team; laughingly declaring that he is now fulfilling his passion for fermentation. Leaving behind an epic journey in the environmental field – investigating and cleaning up toxic, hazardous and radioactive waste sites – he finally is able to relax and (remarkably) measure the product of his work … by Taste!
When he’s not making spirits, Michael loves to travel – exploring the desert landscapes, waterfalls, mountain trails and ocean vistas that have been preserved here in Oregon.
Oregon Spirit Distillers drink of choice: Corpse Reviver #2.
