Born in Beaver County, PA, Michael moved to Lancaster County in 1989 after graduating from Robert Morris University with a degree in Business Administration. He achieved a second degree in 2013 from Waldorf College, graduating Summa Cum Laude. After a brief stint with Lancaster City Recreation Commission, he joined Sir Speedy Printing working his way up to owner in four short years. Here is where he honed the skills that make him a valuable resource to his clients.
The next fourteen years were spent as Business Manager, General Manager, Operations Manager, CIO, and Benefits Administrator.
