Michael has always been a programmer; from developing logo programs in second grade to a visual basic-based performance piece on the Seven Bridges of Königsberg in high school. In college he detoured into modeling the brain, but eventually found his way back into software development at MathWorks. While there he developed Java-based desktop software before getting on the mobile bandwagon. For the past two years he worked on a native iOS app to perform complex scientific computation on the cloud.
When not coding, he enjoys board games, home-brewing, music, rooting for the Yankees, gardening, and most importantly, spending time with his wife and new baby.
Michael has master's degrees in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University, and neuroscience from Brandeis University.
