Michael Jaeger supports the Penn Biden Center team as an IT/AV Specialist managing and developing web content and supporting back-end processes. Jaeger brings years of experience working with tech and in academic institutions. Prior to joining the Penn Biden Center, Michael worked at NYU Washington D.C. as part of the Service Delivery team that ensured audio and visual fluidity throughout the Washington D.C. campus, and he previously worked at Daemen College as an Audio-Visual Specialist. At Daemen, Michael also shot and edited videos for events, class lectures and guest speakers and served as the Assistant Tennis Coach for four seasons.
Michael has also worked at Squeaky Wheel, a non-profit media art center, where he oversaw day-to-day operations, managed the center’s social media, and helped run the Buffalo Youth Media Institute, a six-week, high-intensity program that teaches local high school students how to compose, shoot and edit their own documentaries. During this time, Michael occasionally edited and organized programming for the local television show "Art Grease.”
In 2012, Michael produced the short documentary “Jilly’s Law,” which was instrumental in supporting the passage of a comprehensive domestic violence law in the New York State Legislature, which Governor Andrew Cuomo later signed that year.
