Get to Know Michael!
If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have?
My favorite superhero is the Flash, so naturally, I would want super speed. Who wouldn’t want to be able to run so fast you could avoid the traffic in Boston?
If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
I am extremely dedicated. If I set my mind to something I will do almost anything to accomplish that goal. When I got my first Xbox when I was 11 I wanted to know how it worked so I took it apart to its smallest pieces and stayed up all night putting it back together. It still works to this day.
What is your favorite thing about your career?
Being able to solve problems and continue learning everything I can about computers as I work.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I love cars almost as much as I love computers and have been known to frequent car shows. I like to work on improving my own car and would want to be a mechanic to get to work on a variety of classic cars.
What celebrity would you like to meet at Starbucks/Dunkin Donuts for a cup of coffee?
I would want to meet Elon Musk at Dunkin’, because no matter what we talked about it would interest me.
