Michael is an accomplished and seasoned IT professional with deep roots in both software development and hardware systems administration. His software development career began in the late eighties with writing DOS programs that interfaced with hardware plugged into serial ports and that sparked his keen interest in pursuing an understanding of how computers worked all the way down to the circuit level. Michael has parlayed his passion for technology into a long and varied career of tackling challenging problems in various fields from manufacturing to hospitality to medical research and billing and finance. Today, he continues to be deeply hands-on in software development and hardware provisioning while successfully leading technical teams and translating technical concepts into working solutions as well as explaining in common language, enabling business executives to fully understand the technology and solutions being implemented to solve the ever changing needs of the business.

Cybrains, Inc. was established in 2001 during a time when the dot com bubble burst and made it difficult to find full-time employment in the IT field. Michael's expertise has allowed him to consistently acquire and keep clients during even the worst of economic times. Cybrains' history has been a storied one with periods of intense activity to periods of dormancy as Michael has been repeatedly recruited to join the firms of his various clients to head up their IT shops. Michael has decided to only pursue Cybrains full-time as he feels he has much to offer not only to his clients, but to those who would come to work for Cybrains.
