MichaelLogoMichael Bradley

Michael has been working with computers in some form or fashion since he was 12 years old.  Thanks to a 7th grade teacher in the mid-1980s, he learned BASIC on an Apple II+ that you had to crack the case on and make sure the DOS chip was firmly seated in order to boot up.  He has continued playing with computers ever since and has been consulting and building business solutions for the past 8 years.  A jack-of-all-trades when it comes to software and hardware, he has often learned on-the-fly how to work with a variety of systems over his career of 20+ years.  Somehow over all these years he has also managed to keep that childhood curiosity and joy of getting a computer to “do” something that most people take for granted and, fortunately for us & our customers, he figured out a way to turn that into a career.

When he’s not attached to a computer, he enjoys patio gardening, cooking, playing guitar, reading science fiction or something historical, watching movies, playing billiards, chess, and most board and card games.  His favorite color is green and he finds the Fibonacci sequence intriguing, even before Dan Brown made everyone aware of it.
