Michael Darfler – Director


Michael has spent his whole life Making and Doing, first as a kid building rafts for his toy to cross the stream behind his house, and then professionally as a carpenter, timber framer, cabinet maker and furniture designer. Working with teens across Philadelphia, Michael has seen first hand how the simple act of getting people to build something together can empower an entire community. “It’s not just about understanding how to solve problems but also having the skills and sense of empowerment to actual go out and do it.”
