Mike has always loved technology and education. When the two can come together he is in his happy place. He has served as a systems engineer, site reliability engineer, and a cloud solutions architect in both the private and public sectors. With a passion to learn "all the things," Mike has earned several technology related certifications as well as degrees in the humanities because he believes each area helps him have a better understanding of the other. When not learning in front of a computer Mike enjoys the outdoors. Hiking and camping are two of his favorite past times, especially doing so with his family.
