I’m Michael.

I work as an IT manager in Washington, D.C. where I lead a team responsible for hundreds of endpoints. I earned my B.S. in Cybersecurity while working as a stay-at-home dad for my first son.

At home I enjoy playing with my two boys, reading, personal finance, Magic: The Gathering, and dreaming about space.

Things I think about:

A.I. and other advanced technologies really pique my interest, and I spend an inordinate amount of time talking with ChatGPT and coming up with unique prompts. Some of the more interesting topics we’ve discussed include:

  • deep space communications & navigation
  • potential dangers & benefits of A.I.
  • crunching the numbers for help comparing a lease & purchase for my new car

Sustainable energy and water supply/purification also consume much of my daydreams. I believe the United States should greatly increase our nuclear power generation capabilities and also seriously invest in water desalination, purification, and transportation infrastructure.

I like good causes.

Here are some of my favorites:
