Mike has worked with a diverse mix of nonprofits throughout his career. Originally from the Philadelphia area, his career began in Washington, D.C., where he helped nonprofits grow their donor base. After moving back to the Delaware Valley, Mike worked with educational institutions to identify major donors and build diverse boards. As a consultant with Graham-Pelton, he worked with nonprofits to tackle obstacles and improve overall departmental function. Mike believes in an empathetic approach to client relationship-building and problem solving.
After his daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, he experienced firsthand the importance of empathy in all aspects of nonprofit work. That experience helps drive his desire to help nonprofits understand the importance of their work in the lives of their constituents.
When he’s not working, Mike enjoys spending time with his family, writing, and taking photos. In their spare time, both Mike and his wife are committed to helping various pediatric cancer nonprofits fundraise throughout the year.
Mike is a graduate of Archmere Academy in Claymont, DE, and holds a degree in Corporate Communications from Penn State. He sits on the board of the Haverford Township Adult School, which offers affordable educational classes to older adults in Delaware County. He lives in Media, Pennsylvania with his wife and young son.
