Michael has over 20 years experience building "stuff on screens" - starting in TV news production, moving to software and finally the web. He has worked for small consultancy firms and Fortune 500 companies.
In 2002 Michael founded Boyink Interactive which provides internet consulting, strategy development, information architecture and complete website development for clients around the globe. 2002 was also the year Michael discovered EllisLab. Michael was one of the original members of the EE Professionals Network and have worked on dozens of ExpressionEngine based websites.
In 2008 Michael published the first ExpressionEngine book, which was quickly followed up by the first EE screencasts and first classroom training for ExpressionEngine.
Since then Michael has delivered EE training in locations across the United States and taught it to everyone from self-employed freelancers to large companies like Garmin. Michael is also a speaker - talking about EE in places like BarCamp, and ExpressionEngine Conferences.
Michael is the married father of two, and since late 2010 has been traveling the USA full time in an RV with his family.
