Michael is Reach Out and Read of Great New York’s Regional Program Associate. A native Philadelphian, Michael first became passionate about service work as a teenager, when he worked to distribute meals to vulnerable populations in the city. This passion stuck with him as he entered Princeton University, where he led several service trips for incoming freshmen. He graduated in Spring 2020, and is now looking forward to being of service to the New York City community, and maybe even getting to explore the pickup basketball scene when things return to normal!
