Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, Michael serves Stride as a Senior Consultant with over 6 years in software development and information technology. He has worked in a range of industries, developing applications in both Java and Ruby and using frameworks such as Rails, and React. A fun fact about Michael is that he went to LaGuardia High School for Music -- He once played the trumpet very well, but had to put it down when he got braces. Since then, he hasn't picked it up. He can still read music though!
