Mike was born in Columbus, NJ and graduated from Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA in May 2009 with a BS degree in Physics and a minor in Math. He then got a MEng degree from Penn State's Graduate Program in Acoustics. His research involved designs for wideband tonpilz trandsucers. During his tenure at Penn State, Mike began making educational videos on the science of acoustics for a general audience.
In the fall of 2014, Mike began his graduate studies at NC State, coming back to physics after 5 years as an acoustician. The PER group brought him to NC State as his interests lie in transforming education through technology and the internet.
