You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Curriculum Development • Editing • Publishing • Medical education • Content development

Key Accomplishments

My experience includes academic research, classroom teaching, freelance and creative writing, medical communications, and basic HTML/CSS coding. My primary skill sets are product concept and content development. I am seeking to develop an innovative approach to online learning that is multimedia, interactive, and social, targeting users BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE of classrooms to change the culture of learning and make learning a part of everyday life.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I have a co-founder and we are both teachers and scholars passionate about this idea. We need, for starters, a tech lead and a business development lead who share our passion and are in a position to take on a lot of responsibility in exchange for equity, at least initially. Our goal at this point is to create a product with a value proposition that will gain us customers, investors, or both so that we can start getting a return on our investment of time, effort, and creative imagination.

Michael is highly intelligent and understands the big picture when it comes to business, having operated in both creative and account manage ... ment roles.
Peter Ronick
We worked together
Michael is a driven business professional. He has the ability to see the big picture, the end game, with a keen instinct and matching intuit ... ion that has awarded him success throughout his career. Michael is also an intelligent and persuasive businessman and always brings a lot of thought provoking ideas to the table. Michael and I worked very closely for about a year on a large scale SaaS workflow automation product for a major pharmaceutical company when it was usual and customary to build and invent from the ground up. Michael proposed many forward-thinking ideas during the strategic planning and discovery phases of this tool that clearly showed his understanding of the user experience, the client's needs, and the sustainability of the product; all very important qualities in a professional operating in this space. It is my pleasure to vouch for Michael.

He is an independent thinker
Octavio (Tavi) Gonzalez
We worked together
Very resourceful and talented, Michael is also extremely well-equipped to build capacity for his own initiatives and to connect with other e ... ntrepreneurs and knowledge workers. He is a visionary who stands out from the crowd and is a prudent risk-taker, who delivers value to his readers, listeners, and co-conspirators. He is also a very nice guy, and a very well-educated Classics scholar and poet.
