About Mike

Austinite looking for my next software startup, veteran software engineer, have been a cofounder, angel investor, advisor, CTO for startups and I still enjoy being a software engineer and writing code. Enjoy triathalon training, scuba travel and living in downtown Austin.

I would like to cofound a startup from scratch, or join an existing early stage startup as CTO or similar.

I also provide Virtual CTO consulting services.

I have broad experience in considering markets, examining problem spaces and building software solutions, and analyzing investments as well as ~25 years of software engineering practice.
