(He/Him/His)


Micah manages real estate development for downtown and urban infill sites throughout the Southeastern US. His areas of professional focus are public-private partnerships and community-supportive development, having managed such projects as Kent Corner (location of the Durham Co-op Market), the mixed-use redevelopment of Revolution Mill in Greensboro, and a public-private partnership in Washington, DC. 


Beyond his professional side, Micah’s passions have always centered around three themes: makers, reuse, and entrepreneurship. With his good friends, he founded Fab Lab Tulsa in 2010, a maker space partnership with MIT in a low-income and culturally diverse neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma. He has previously served the historic preservation community as a member of the Durham Historic Preservation Commission, as Vice President of Preservation Durham, and as a professional practitioner with Self-Help. 


An avid hunter of the architectural past, the weird and unusual, and a good deal, Micah has been shopping at the Scrap Exchange since originally moving to Durham in 2012. In his free time, he enjoys music (live but in 2020 collecting albums), camping and hiking, vegetable gardening, and obeying the demands of his dogs Roustabout and Bennie.
