About Michael

I founded pijaz with a vision to revolutionize how the world communicates visually. I architected, coded and patented a real-time cloud media personalization workflow platform.

On the big company side, I drove Nike's software/firmware strategy for the Nike+ product line, and developed partner analytics tools for Google/YouTube's global live streaming initiative for the London 2012 Olympics.

Prior to this, I founded, built and sold a software company in the 1990's that enabled the worldwide print publishing industry to rapidly transition from proprietary systems to the Macintosh as a publishing platform.

I have driven platform solution strategy and development at small to large companies in a variety of verticals including entertainment, consumer electronics, media, social, sports, bioscience, telecom, storage solutions and embedded systems.
