Michael began working at the Newport Beach Advice office in 2013 and was tasked with developing the look and flow of what is now the Advice Local Dashboard. Since then, he’s been able to work closely with each department at Advice to create awesome visuals and ideas.
A graduate of the University of California, Irvine, Michael started his career in marketing before setting off on multiple independent business ventures which would require him to learn visual design and web development out of necessity. He quickly fell in love with the process and decided to make web design and development his career, eventually leading to his position at Advice Local.
In his free time, Michael enjoys pretending to be a Yelp Elite to get better service at restaurants and trying to keep up with Todd Bryson’s vertical feet score (impossible) in the winter.
