Hey, I'm Michael. I'm currently helping FloSports become the essential destination for passionate sports fans by adding features that fans love to our multi-tenant web application that serves articles, results & rankings, VOD and livestreams for 25 different sports.
I know I'm making what our fans love because I am one. Flo is the home of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and I'm currently a BJJ blue belt. I need to compete more to get my own profile on FloGrappling! I've also competed a few times in powerlifting and you can find my results on OpenPowerlifting, a volunteer run organization that I have made some contributions to over the years. It has a blazingly fast Rust backend and an efficient minimalistic UI. I also helped write an event management application using React and Redux to help feed high quality data into the main system.
Prior to joining FloSports I worked as a software engineer at LBi Software where I built and maintained enterprise systems and architected single page applications for Major League Baseball and the National Football League. I helped create the systems of record for many parts of the game, and many of the apps I built are used by league officials as the game is being played.
