I’m passionate about baseball, reliable, and dependable. I’m a team player and have a strong work ethic.
During my college baseball career, I ended my freshman season as the closer at the University of Puget Sound with a 0.00 ERA. After the season, I played summer ball for the Bend Elks in the West Coast League, working hard to constantly improve my game. I secured the closing role once again in my sophomore season. The next summer I was recruited to play summer ball once again in the West Coast League with the Bellingham Bells. I became the game one starting pitcher my junior season. Most Winning pitcher in the northwest conference and earned second-team all-conference. In my senior season, I was the game one starting pitcher.
I graduated with a major in Business and a minor in Economics from the University of Puget Sound in May of 2019, and now working on various projects with a real estate management and development company (SUHRCO). Currently a starting pitcher in semi-professional baseball with the Seattle Cheney Studs in the Pacific International League.
I would like to bring my talents, experiences, and work ethic overseas, taking my baseball career to a new level.

I’m very excited that Michael may have an opportunity to play overseas.
Michael is an incredible talent for our level. He is a 6’6 RHP with very good velocity and outstanding split finger pitch. We needed to use him as a starter out of necessity his last two years at Puget Sound but I believe he is best suited as a Closer. When he can just come in and throw hard for 1 or 2 innings he is truly dominant. He set our saves record at the University in his first 2 years at Puget Sound before we moved him into the starting rotation. He is a perfectly capable starter if that is what is needed- but again in my opinion his ceiling is as a closer.
Michael is a very hard worker and very driven as well. If a team takes a chance on him I think they will be very happy with the person and player they get. He is very good with kids during all of our youth programs here at Puget Sound so I think he would fit in well in any type of camp / community service situation that is asked of him.
During his time here at Puget Sound, Michael developed an appreciation for the value of how to make the most of his time in between pitching outings. Michael became meticulous with his approach to arm care and recovery by using different methods including conditioning, strength training and maintenance, interval throwing, joint mobility and stability regimens, manual therapy and various modalities. Michael’s commitment to his preparation has had a direct effect on the success he has had on the mound and has also allowed him to be more durable when fatigue might otherwise become a factor. It is great to see Michael have success with all of the work he puts in to his craft and he will certainly continue this trend in the future as a result.
