Mike grew up on Staten Island and attended Stuyvesant High School. He excelled at science and mathematics and was a finalist in the Westinghouse Talent Search Competition.
At Princeton Mike made friends through Outdoor Action, Mathey College, applied math and economics at the engineering school, Tower Club, and the Ultimate Frisbee Club. He made us laugh and think. He could talk intelligently (and had an opinion) on almost every topic.
In 2004 Mike married his high school classmate, Amy. They moved to Shanghai in 2005, where he worked at JLL. They moved to Hong Kong in 2013, where he continued with JLL and later worked for BlackRock as director and head of Asia Pacific real-estate research. Their beautiful daughter, Sidney, was born in 2011. It was wonderful to see Mike and his family at our 25th reunion.
Mike was an incredible dad, husband, son, brother, and loyal friend. He is survived by his wife, Amy; daughter Sidney; sister Alyssa; and parents Roberta and Ed. The class extends its deepest condolences to all of them. Mike will be greatly missed.
