Virtually benevolent, heavily caffeinated. Michael is an data center consultant and professional geek. He's a member of the VMware vExpert and Cisco Champion influencer programs, a VMware Certified Advanced Professional, EMC Certified Implementation Engineer, Cisco Certified Networking Associate and Cisco Datacenter Specialist.

Thanks to a grant to his middle school from Microsoft, he has been a legitimate system administrator from the time he was in the 13. While in high school he was inspired to become a journalist by his newspaper advisor, and later studied journalism at Baker University. Unsure of exactly where the profession of journalism would go in the future, and if it could pay the bills, he left school to peruse a career in information technology. Although his IT career more than pays the bills, his love of writing, reporting and analysis has never died.

From 2002 to 2009 he was a full time senior staffer at Neowin serving in nearly every capacity and position on the site over the 7 year period. Originally hired after responding to a post by Neobond for gaming news reporters, he went on to later serve as one of the original Supervisors, and eventually as the first Managing Editor where he setup the formatting, staffing, policies and procedures that have established Neowin as a technology blogging powerhouse. He retired from the site in mid-2009 to peruse other interests. In late 2011 he returned is a part time news contributor.

He lives in Kansas City with his wife, two sons and dog.
