Michael is a long-time member of the Colorado Mycological Society & serves as the editor of Spores Afield, their monthly newsletter. He has lead forays for the Denver Botanic Gardens, the Center for Integrative Botanical Studies, & the Boulder Living Arts School. He was even so fortunate to take a group of chefs from all over the United States on a culinary foray on behalf of the 2014 annual Chef's Collaborative Summit. That same year he was invited to present at the annual Bioneers Conference at CU Boulder exploring the exciting topic of myco-remediation & what possibilities mycelium has to offer for building soil integrity & it's overall importance to successful ecosystems. In 2014 he produced and facilitated a 2-day medicinal mushroom workshop with Robert Rogers, author of The Fungal Pharmacy and revered herbalist based in Alberta Canada. In 2015 Michael studied lab technique and mushroom cultivation under Dr. Daniel Tura at Aloha Medicinals in Carson City, NV. He has taught mushroom cultivation classes for Boulder High Country Mushrooms, The Growhaus, & Cow Town Grangers. 2016 is poised to be his busiest year, leading identification workshops for the Denver Botanic Gardens, The Living Arts School, Hatch Lab, the Walking Mountain Science Center based in Avon, Colorado, & Swedish based Fjallraven Outdoor Gear.
