Michael was born in Santa Monica and raised outside Philadelphia. At Georgetown, he double-majored in finance and small business management. Somehow, he found time to play varsity baseball, too. After college he worked for Vanguard, improving their mutual fund accounting programs. Then he moved to California, joined Alliance Bernstein, and participated in one of the industry's most esteemed advisor training programs.
After earning his MBA at UCLA, Michael joined Westmount in 2011, attracted by a culture of people "humble and intellectually curious, yet courageous enough to blaze a new independent trail in our industry." He credits his grandfather, who emigrated from Italy as a young man and opened a shoemaking business in Elizabeth, New Jersey, for inspiring many of the personal financial principles he still operates by today.
