A surprising fact about me:
I'm an Eagle Scout... and still live by the motto, "be prepared."
Perhaps it's not surprising that I earned the highest rank in Boy Scouts, but it may be surprising that only 2% of Scouts do!
Favorite place I’ve visited and why:
The River Walk in San Antonio, TX - it was designed by a relative in 1939, Robert H.H. Hugman (he was an architect).
What I originally thought I’d be when I grew up:
Through high school and into college I thought I'd be an architect.
Resourceful, creative and up for any challenge... Michael earns the nickname "MacGyver." He doesn't make bombs out of gum wrappers, paper clips and pocket lint, but he does assemble equally amazing promotional projects that make a big bang! After graduating with a Design degree from UC Davis ('94), Michael spent more than 16 years with a Fortune 500 retail store chain, including eight years in print advertising and four years in video production. He's worn many hats and brings a broad range of skills and talents to the MadeToOrder team: Graphic layouts, virtual samples, logos, and accurate "e-proofs" are no problem for this guy.
Michael is a detail freak, and takes pride in everything he does. Ultra-clear communication and total attention to detail ensure that there are no "surprises" when it comes to his clients’ promotional projects.
In his free time, Michael is a home improvement enthusiast -- creating, building, and repairing, often diving into many projects most would never attempt. He also enjoys outdoor activities such as golf, mountain biking, hiking, snowboarding and water sports, and plays on several recreational softball teams.
