Project Management Business Partner
Michael grew up in Southern Indiana where he had a dream of becoming an architect. After graduating from Ball State University with a degree in architecture, he decided to pursue a career in the Army. He developed the idea to start a coffee shop in Raeford as a place where people can work; work on friendships, relationships, work itself, homework, or just self-care. In his free time, you can find Michael hanging out with his dog, Mac, who is also a vital member of the RaeCo Crew. Michael says, "Although not an official partner, [Mac] contributes to the overall atmosphere and morale for partners and employees."
