Michael joined the Lubuto team in February 2015. He focuses on communication and donor management for both the DC and Zambia offices. Michael also built the new website and serves as its webmaster—and helps to digitally preserve and archive Zambian books. He studied art history as an undergraduate at the University of Chicago and historic preservation as a graduate student at Columbia University. Michael studied abroad in South Africa and has spent time in Mozambique and several Middle Eastern countries for work and research. Before his time with Lubuto, Michael worked as a paralegal and in higher education administration. Michael has a strong interest in international development and is thrilled to have had the opportunity to visit Zambia and meet the children at Lubuto libraries in March 2016.
