About Michael

I have spent the last 10 years working for large corporate in the banking and insurance industries in various different roles (developer, data analyst, business analyst, program manager etc). I've enjoyed my career so far and it't given me a great chance to travel and see the world (I am Irish but live in Zurich, Switzerland right now and have spent time in the US, Australia, Middle East and different parts of South East Asia).

I have always wanted to start a business. and I am determined that this is the path I will go down over the next 12 months. I am pretty technical in and I can write code but I wouldn't consider myself a developer. I am fanatic about technology of all kinds - my wife say's that I will buy anything as long as you can plug into a power socket and that I am the only person she knows who reads white papers to relax.

I have one idea that I am firmly trying to progress right now and a couple of other things that I am trying to evolve in the background. I am interested in all of the following
(a) finding someone technical who wants to come on board with what I am working on now
(b) to join someone else's startup
(c) just toss some ideas around with similar minded people

It's also worth mentioning that I am not only interested in tech startups. If you have a business idea that is not technology related then I am equally interested.
