Prior to the establishment of the FBI's cyber-division, he lent his expertise in identifying and reporting nefarious cyber activities. By 2004, his unwavering commitment to leveraging technology for problem-solving led him into pre-sales engineering and sales roles for a major MWBE corporation. His journey culminated in his current role as the owner and president of Commlan, a position he assumed in 2008.

Michael's extensive experience spans across numerous SMBs and enterprise giants including Accenture, AIG, Bayer Healthcare, Blackrock, Debevoise and Plimpton, US Navy, GE Capital, Panasonic, Rockefeller University, Siemens, Verizon and many others.
