Tech Creative Coaching
Educated as an architect, Michael brings a sense of creativity and design to synergistic software development and throughout his 27-year career he has specialized on combining technology in interesting ways.
Throughout this journey, Michael has developed a practical methodology for building a career that combines creative passions with a love of technology. He began using this methodology with mentoring and coaching with fellow employees, his alumni networks, his social network, and through LinkedIn and in doing so has helped dozens of people over the past few years.
Michael is currently a Principal Technical Program Manager on Microsoft’s Commercial Software Engineering team where he leads joint engineering projects with customers in the media and entertainment industry.
In 2021 Michael lauched Galeryst, a website that generates 3D virtual art galleries from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom albums. Started as a way to share his thirty years of artwork in journals, he found that artists and photographers who didn’t have the programming or 3D modeling skills would find that useful as well so he launched it in December 2021.
An alumni of the University of Arizona, Michael is an active mentor on the Bear Down Network.
