Steven Michael is responsible for business development at The Center for Microbiome Innovation as well as the management of recruitment activities for The Microsetta Initiative. Steven has a background in information technology, marketing, & sales that he’s utilized in various industries ranging from automotive e-commerce to beer & coffee membership clubs.

The innovative research being conducted in the microbiome field is what motivates him on a daily basis. “This is such a fun field of science that has the potential to treat and cure ailments using non-invasive methods, but that can only be achieved if everyday citizens take action and send in their microbiome samples. I believe deeply in the work of our research team, and I love being able to educate others about why they should too.”

In his spare time, Steven is an avid home cook and enjoys going hiking in the Pacific Northwest with his partner Nickie and dog Autumn.
