Featured Presentation:
Michael is the founding director of Ocean Conservation Research, a scientific research and policy development organization focused on understanding the impacts of, and finding technical and policy solutions to the growing problem of human-generated ocean noise pollution. He is a technical generalist conversant in physics, acoustics, biology, electronics, and cultural history, with a gift for conveying complex scientific and technical issues in clear, understandable terms.

He has written and spoken about marine bio-acoustics since 1992, presenting in national and regional hearings; national and international television, radio, and news publications; and in museums, schools, and universities.

His book titled Hear Where We Are: Sound, Ecology, and Sense of Place (Springer 2013) reveals how humans and other animals use sound and sound perception to establish their placement in their environment, and communicate that placement to others.

Michael is also a musician, performing original compositions and jazz standards on piano, vibes, flute, and bass.
