Hey! I'm Michael. My friends call me Miz.
I'm a Community Manager for Uber in New York.
Uber is Everyone's Private Driver – and we're doing incredible work by rolling out an efficient, innovative, and elegant transportation system in cities across the world.
I also spent some time at GroupMe, where I was a Support/Community Management Intern during the summer of 2011 and got memed often. After graduating, I returned to GroupMe/Skype for a little while and worked on Experiences. I learned a lot from Team GroupMe and loved every minute of it.
I graduated from the University of Connecticut.
I made the most of my time at UConn – including leading the fraternity community as the 2011 President of the Interfraternity Council, creating a new brand identity, website, and workflows for HuskyTHON (the largest student-run philanthropy in Connecticut), and being a cohort member of Leadership Legacy Experience, the University’s premiere leadership recognition and development program.
I was President of the UConn Polo Team, employed as a Campus Tour Leader, and won a Startup Weekend building Sobrio, an app to connect campus sober drivers with those needing rides.
I'm interested in a bunch of different things.
I'm an amateur graphic designer. I'm interested in how an organization's mission influences their design and branding.

When I have spare time, I play polo, ski, and figure out ways to be more efficient, effective, and consistent.
