About Michael 

Michael is passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion, and he wants to bring his unique perspective to you.

He has been working in the field for over 20 years, researching, writing, speaking, and facilitating in order to build deeper understanding, more equality, and more inclusion. He is a Senior Partner and Digital Solutions Lead at inQUEST Consulting, and he is co-author of the forthcoming book, "Subtle Acts of Exclusion: How to Understand, Identify, and Stop Microaggressions."

Michael tries to know what he is talking about. He got a doctorate in cultural anthropology with a special certificate in cognitive psychology in order to understand the bases for inequality and exclusion. Seeing how our cultures and cognition create spaces that are unfair and unequal opens up a window into seeing how we could do things better. 

Michael lives on a small flower farm in Maryland with his love Jill, his inspiring and wacky kids Rio, Solomon, Raphael, and Carmelo, and usually some chickens and turkeys too.
