A long time educator, Michael taught Science in California where he also worked in developing the first set of Technology in the Curriculum materials for the State of California. In 1986 he joined Apple Computer’s Classroom of Tomorrow (ACOT) research and development project and later served as Apple’s Education Competitive Analyst and lead major curriculum related marketing initiatives. He remained a contributor to science education through many projects including being one of the authors of California’s ground breaking Science Framework of 1990.

Michael left Apple Computer to pursue the development of a technology of his design that dynamically indicates the relationship between curriculum, curriculum standards, and instructional resources for which he received patents in 1998. As founder of Mediaseek Technologies, Inc. he laid the groundwork for many of the innovations in standards implementation and instructional resource integration that followed. He continued the development of tools for children and educators as Director of Education Business Development at N2H2 and VP and GM of Brainium Technologies in the following years where he worked on challenges associated with sustainable 1:1 computing in schools.

Michael and his associates create lasting change in how we learn and educate through their work with corporations and educational institutions. Their clients have benefited through increased efficiency, improved understanding of the K-12 market, and the development of innovative yet sustainable solutions. Their diverse expertise representing educational and corporate leadership, market analysis, development, instructional design, and tested knowledge of all facets of K-12 education are married with a vision that generates success for their clients while advancing their vision for education.
