Michael discovered computer science at the age of 13 when googling ”how do I make games”. From that google search, Mike has worked as a freelance game developer, worked in industry for Intel, Sony PlayStation, Oblong Industries, and researched at The Ohio Supercomputer Center to name a few. Mike cares about building tools to help programmers monitor and improve the performance of realtime applications–particularly any visual multimedia. Mike believes computer science can be learned by all.
In Michael’s spare time he goes for long runs, plays video games while on his exercise bike, learns guitar, and considers himself an amateur pizza and wine maker.
