Michael has been an active part of the development and advocacy for study abroad programs at Duquesne University since his undergraduate years.

Michael spent two years in Eastern Spain (Catalonia) between his Freshman and Sophomore year doing volunteer work, while learning language and culture, and then studied abroad twice during his junior year at the University
of Seville in Spain for a semester and in a summer program on ecotourism in Costa Rica. He also spent three
of his undergraduate summers traveling and competing with the Duquesne University Chamber Singers across
Europe and Canada.

After graduating from Duquesne University, Michael pursued graduate studies in Spanish Literature at St. Louis University's Madrid Campus in Spain and eventually earned a second graduate degree in Theology with a focus
on Peace and Justice Studies from Graceland University in Kansas City, Missouri. 

Michael’s international and intercultural experiences have defined who he is today while making him an expert programmer for academic programs abroad. His passion in his career is to help college students have the same transformational experiences he had as a young person, putting them on the path to global citizenship and being
co-creators of a more peaceful world.
