Michael studied interior design in San Diego while apprenticing under two highly regarded designers at “Design Studio" in La Jolla. The practice had been in business since 1967, a La Jolla institution. In 1995 after the retirement of one of the principles and relocation of the other, Michael took control of the business and began his private practice in January of that year, now some two decades ago.
