Hi, I'm Michael
I’m a visual journalist interested in how media, technology, and design intersect to tell meaningful stories about the human condition.
I’ve produced videos, curated playlists, and written profile pieces on Color & Rhyme—a music blog I started in 2016. I also cover independent Chicago hip-hop for Lyrical Lemonade.
I spent this past winter in Northwestern University’s Bay Area Immersion Program where I worked on service design with AirBnB and communication design with Meedan.
Currently, I'm collaborating on an interactive VR journalism piece as part of Northwestern's Knight Lab Studio that tells a story using an artifact from the Smithsonian digital archive.
In my free time, I like to make playlists for my friends, watch Netflix rom-coms (most recently 'Someone Great') and sip tea 🍵.
