Michael’s formal education was at the Gemological Institute of America studying Gemology, and at Pennsylvania State University majoring in Visual Arts and English. He has apprenticed and worked with world-class jewelry designers, luxury brands, and goldsmiths throughout the country from Alaska to the Caribbean and many places in-between.
