Projects by Industry

Under the tutelage of a professor, a group of students from Salem State University banded together to produce a web-text about the process of composing works of art and nonfiction using audio samples and recordings. This project was eventually published in a scholarly online journal that covers topics of rhetoric and pedagogy. The title of the project was, "Navigating the Soundscape: Composing with Audio," and Michael was a co-writer and contributor. In addition to splicing a subject's oral history with samples of music to creative a unified audio-memoir piece, Michael wrote an extensive scholarly paper on his role in the project, whcih was also published in the journal, and helped his team members make edits to the web-text as a whole. In its entirety, the project took almost five months to complete. This project was unpaid.


Michael was an editorial project manager for an independent book project published through international self-publishing platform. He assisted directors with production and design of a full-length book of paintings by a prominent artist, resulting in a qualified finished product available for sale to the public. He provided design and copywriting work for book and its e-commerce website while establishing a relationship with Barnes & Noble, resulting in availability of the book for purchase in the company’s online store.

Michael was employed for over seven years by one of the major book retailers in the United States. He served in several roles, learning the bookselling industry from the ground up. His primary roles were sales, merchandizing, and customer service, but he also gained insights into marketing, office work, publishing, mobile technology, consumer trends, shipping, receiving, and even food service.
