Full bio

Over 15 years of experience in programming in a variety of languages and platforms. His architecture experience contains both green field and existing systems in the financial industry for high dollar / large volume.

The wizard behind the curtain... Mike is Froomz's resident miracle worker. As co-founder and technical brains behind Froomz, he brings with him over 15 years of industry experience and expertise. Most recently, he was software architecture/team leadership with a Fortune 500 financial company, where he was responsible for a variety of applications including customer facing websites, high-volume internal applications, and providing expertise to a range of teams.He currently directs the product architecture, operations, development, research and design of Froomz.com.

When Mike isn't giving "more power!" to Starship Froomz's warp engines, he explores "strange new worlds" through hiking, light mountaineering, rock climbing, and piloting fast cars around race tracks. Unswerving determination and a quest for challenge underlie his penchant for grueling triathlons and arduous adventure runs. His video gaming ineptitude, despite a childhood of practice, remains a mystery, however.
