In the Office
As a Technical Project Manager at DesignHammer, Michael coordinates internal teams and aligns their efforts with client needs. Additionally, he supports the business development team in forecasting resource availability and scheduling newly signed projects.
Born and raised in Chapel Hill, Michael spent his entire academic life in Chapel Hill. While studying Chemistry at UNC, Michael assisted in running computer-based lab testing for undergraduate labs.

Since then Michael continued with customer-facing work, including a variety of roles supporting end-user and small business technologies.
Out of the Office
As you may expect from an NC native, he has strong feelings about barbeque and chicken biscuits. A new father, Michael’s many hobbies have been paused due to naps, diaper changes and lack of sleep. When he had free time, Michael had a habit of reading about new things and then collecting them as hobbies. Some of his current interests include: old, cranky cars, tabletop strategy games, movies, relaxing with his wife and new born son, painting miniatures, and nurturing his pet chickens. Michael has been fencing for 28 years and has fenced foil at the National level in the past. Michael also officiates fencing tournaments and has been a varsity team assistant coach at UNC-Chapel Hill. Michael and his wife Ko-Han recently welcomed their first child, Holden, and are building a new house on 11 acres.
