advisor & development

I am an Eagle Scout and earned a bachelor’s degree from the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University, as well as, an MBA from the University of Chicago with concentrations in finance and international business.  I am an active member of the National Association of Corporate Directors and the Young Presidents’ Organization where I serve on the Leadership Committee for the Dallas Christian Fellowship.

Currently, I serve several growth companies as a Director or Advisor. I also contribute to the Investment Committee of SBoTX Foundation and the Board of Directors for the Dallas Summer Musicals.

Before that, I served as an Operating Partner for HBC Investments and an industry advisor for several private equity fund sponsors, after almost a decade of executive leadership at Interstate Battery.  While at Interstate, I was an officer on the senior executive team, the president of All Battery Centers Inc., Interstate’s multi-unit franchise system, and the president of PowerCare Service and Solutions Inc., Interstate’s independent industrial power management business.

My wife and I have been blessed with two wonderful children, whom we adopted. We enjoy giving back by mentoring other couples through their engagement season. Michael has a passion for the sanctity of life and hopes to serve on the board of a like-minded organization.
