Welcome Michael!

Michael is the ‘new guy,’ joining the team in December 2017. He is excited to be serving his own community here in Airdrie.

Prior to Airdrie, Michael spent the past 10 years working for the communities of Carstairs and Olds Alberta. While there he wore multiple hats, working at everything from community & organizational development to tourism to applying the Main Street Approach™ of economic development – a methodology built on strengthening local economies through revitalization, developing a deep ‘Sense of Place’ and investing in community. It is a skill-set he developed through his years as a consultant working with municipal governments, since arriving in Alberta in 2001.

Before putting down roots here, he was a professional musician working across North America. While it sometimes seems like a strange past-life, Michael still carries a deep passion for music. Michael’s personal time is devoted to his family, and he enjoys nothing more than a weekend enjoying their company.
