Mike enjoys solving problems through the practice of architecture. He likes the daily experience of translating what he hears from clients and other team members into action, be it through understanding technical issues or by building consensus.
Mike coordinates the sustainable design initiatives for Atkin Olshin Schade Architects and is the firm’s technical and quality control director, where his skills in facilitation and promoting knowledge across the practice come to the fore. He has led the design and documentation of several award winning projects, including the Anne d’Harnoncourt Sculpture Garden at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the LEED Gold Certified North Philadelphia Law Center for Community Legal Services, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Indianapolis, and Richards Medical Labs at the University of Pennsylvania.
Mike received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia and a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a regular speaker at design and sustainability conferences and is active in several committees of the Center City Residents Association.
