Michael is a proud alum of MCC, having attended from 2010-2012. He majored in political science, was the recipient of two scholarships, served as a peer mentor, a peer advisor and Student Government Association president. Michael continued his education at SUNY at Albany.
Michael’s career began in the Office of New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, then in the New York State Senate as Legislative Director and went on to work in the United States Senate under U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. He also worked for Apple.
Now back in Rochester, Michael is the founder, chairman and CEO of SoCiti, an engagement management platform that fosters synergy and drives efficiency to create opportunities.
Michael gives back to his community through his SoCiti Student Scholar’s Program where undergraduate students who achieve academic excellence can receive a financial stipend to offset costs for tuition and supplies needed for college. He also returns to MCC when called upon; in 2016 he was the guest speaker at the MCC Foundation’s Salute to Excellence event and in 2020 he hosted an Alumni Connection zoom session hosted by the Office of Student Life and Leadership Development. At both, he was proud to say, “the values of mentorship, community, and servant leadership that MCC taught me are engraved in my heart. I attribute my success to my MCC experience.”
