Michael has extensive experience in business startups & acquisitions, deal structure, fundraising, software development, operations and management consulting. As a serial entrepreneur, he is comfortable both in the boardroom and with the geeks in the back office.
Michael’s strong technical background led to the creation of a video software technology as an alternative to chroma key (green screen) which is based on his patented technology. This led to the development of several B2C products and licensing deals with Apple, Intel, Logitech, and many others.
Michael brings a unique perspective for strategically positioning intellectual property within a business. His proven start-up and project management skills help take ideas from the back of a napkin to an operational business.
