Principal, Health Planning

“Working for clients in another country in not only another time zone, but most often on a different day, is a balancing act with time management.”

Michael joined HDR nearly a decade ago to help expand the company’s healthcare focus in Boston. He later did the same in Australia, where he worked on healthcare projects in Melbourne and Sydney. These days he works on healthcare projects in China, where he travels once a month.

Passionate about designing facilities that promote good health, Michael says it’s a balance between proven typology and innovative approaches. He believes in mentoring others who share his passion for beneficial innovation.

Among Michael’s accomplishments are the major projects he has worked on for top academic healthcare clients, as well as his professional associations with healthcare industry leaders who are passionate about translating research into health and wellness initiatives.
