Michael is a software engineer, security enthusiast, mobile developer & all-around jack-of-all-trades geek. With experience ranging from telephony & call center operations to airline reservation systems to financial billing platforms, he has worked with a diverse range of tech throughout his career.

But at the end of the day, Apple has always held a special place in his heart and on his desk -- from the Apple II range and assortment of Mac Pluses, LC's, and other models that he grew up with to the workhorse Mac Pro line to nearly every generation of today's iOS devices.

Here at TUAW, he occasionally writes about the latest news in the Apple world, but he mostly uses his development skills to support the rest of the team behind the scenes. He lives with his family in Salt Lake City, Utah.
