Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Michael built, managed and eventually sold his Charlotte business that helped build several thousand commercial and residential concrete pools throughout the Carolinas. His specific areas of expertise are in design, engineering, installation of structural freeform concrete using Shotcrete methods of construction, as well as the design, manufacturing, and installation of underwater architectural cement swimming pool plaster finishes.
