Michael is a TJP Mentor and the Communications Director with Public Counsel. He comes to us with 7 years of experience in communications and 5 years of experience in journalism. While not a Veteran himself, he has a wealth of knowledge to share in both communications and law.

Michael’s expertise is in media relations, graphic design, publications, and online communication strategy. He has worked for the Los Angeles Times, the nation’s fastest-growing labor union, and Public Counsel, the nation’s largest not-for-profit law firm of its kind. Public Counsel has a special project to aid veterans in need of legal help and he brings that background to his work.

Michael learned about TJP through Public Counsel staff and pro bono attorneys who were involved in the founding of The Jonas Project.

“The Jonas Project has a powerful model for helping veterans with a vision for a successful business idea to make it a reality. Veterans made a choice to serve our country, and deserve our support. I’m ready to put my skills to work helping veterans pursue their dreams” says Michael.

Michael lives in Los Angeles, California.
