Michael joined the IF team in February 2014. As Director of Broadcasting & Marketing he utilizes his relationships across the industry to deliver broadcast and marketing opportunities for IF’s sports and news clients.

Born and raised in LA, Michael never imagined he’d settle on the east coast, let alone take a job in New York City. That was until he attended Cornell University and developed an interest in media and entertainment. For two years Michael worked as a Student Manager of the Cornell football team, filming practices and joining the team on road trips. That led to a programming internship and eventually a job in the production department at Fox Sports in Los Angeles.

After a few “living the dream” experiences, including sitting in the booth behind Vin Scully at a Dodger game, Michael decided it was time for a change. He’d heard about IF Management through a friend and was immediately intrigued. With a network of college friends, not to mention some extended family, nearby and an offer in hand, Michael knew it was too good of an opportunity to pass up and headed back to the east coast.

True to his roots Michael remains a die-hard Dodgers, Lakers and UCLA Bruins fan. In his free time he enjoys skiing, playing cards and traveling, and he's always up for a game of darts or some sports trivia.
