Michael Covey – Director of Operations/Partner
Michael Covey is the Managing Partner for Juniper. Michael is a graduate of Texas State University San Marcos, where he received a BA in Theater and Minor in Music.
It was during college that Michael spent most of his time working in restaurants either waiting tables or bartending. After graduation, Michael headed back to his home town of Cypress, Texas (a suburb of Houston) where he worked for a steel mill. But Austin and the Texas Hill Country had dug its hooks in and Michael quickly returned to Austin after just 11 months. From there, Michael worked in sales roles for start-ups to large corporations but it wasn’t until he spearheaded a group of investors on The Goodnight that he realized his continued passion for the hospitality industry. From there and along side a lifelong family friend, Chef Nicholas Yanes, Juniper was created.
In his free time, Michael enjoys time with his wife of 5 years, Sarah Covey, as well as expanding his ever growing collection of 80’s-90’s B rated movies – which his wife likes to make fun of him for!
