He opened Palindrome Lighting Design in 1999 as an independent source of lighting design and analysis for commercial, institutional, and residential projects. He carries a BS in Interior Design and expanded the practice as Palindrome Design Associates to include Interior Design in 2008 as a licensed Maryland Certified Interior Designer (lic. #2220).  He is an ASID Professional, past at-large Board Member, and certified for commercial Interior Design by the NCIDQ, and certified in Lighting Design by the NCQLP, and LEED ID+C.   He is past-President of the Maryland Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IESNA), and an Associate Member of the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD).

Mike has provided professional mentorship to design students at George Washington University, Marymount University, and the Community Colleges of Baltimore County, and taught the practicum section of the NCIDQ Exam review.  He is always open to opportunities to have an entertaining talk about lighting, interior design, and business in general, for students and fellow design professionals.
