Diversity of Experience

Passionate, hard-working and exciting; that's how I'd describe Michael in the work place. He has a unique way of viewing products, creating and inventing unique solutions in security...products that no one else could imagine and then take to market. In addition, his diversity of experience brings something extremely valuable to the table which cannot be ignored. Michael is a true professional. I enjoyed working with him.
