Michael hails from West Lafayette, IN and is a 2nd year medical student at Indiana University School of Medicine and an alumnus of Purdue’s College of Pharmacy. He loves everything life has to offer, and thus has trouble saying “no”. Prior to medical school, known as the Exile to Knowledge, he could be found in the gym, at the movies, fishing, building bicycles, in an orchestra, in a hammock, or anywhere else adventure was to be found. This includes places like rural Jamaica, El Salvador, or Ecuador where he served as the Purdue Timmy medical brigade trip leader. His passion for serving others has overcome language barriers and connected him and humbled him by meeting some of life’s most resilient and zealous people.
