Michael worked for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, both in her Oahu District Office and her Washington, D.C. Office. He gained experience helping constituents and handling local issues, and also working on federal legislation.

Michael with Bernie Sanders in his U.S. Senate office (Dec. 2016)

Michael served in Senator Sanders' U.S. Senate Office in 2016, at the height of the U.S. presidential election. He received firsthand exposure to high-stakes issues. He saw how politics could be a vehicle to not only pass bills and craft budgets, but also to shape the conversations surrounding important issues.

Michael with Donovan Dela Cruz, Chair of the Hawaii Senate Ways & Means Committee (May 2019)

Michael spent the 2019 legislative session as a Bills Researcher for the Hawaii State Senate Ways & Means Committee. He learned the ins-and-outs of the legislative process – how to not only introduce a bill, but also get it to the finish line. His experience motivated him to give our district a strong voice in the Legislature.
