One might say Michael is a “jack of all trades”: gifted artist, high-achieving student, community volunteer, and champion sailing and rugby athlete. True to Bepko Scholar fashion, he chose IUPUI because of its proximity to his community, where he is a committed volunteer with the Indy Dream Center and the ICanBike Program. To him, being a Bepko Scholar means leading by example and putting his best foot forward to achieve what he sets out to do and inspire his peers to do the same. He plans to engage in every opportunity to make a difference locally and he hopes that his passion for design will help encourage people to appreciate life, community, and each other.
