Chief Executive Officer
Michael has a track record of starting and managing technology companies with successively higher valuations and exits. He has raised over $20M in investment to date and took his last company public, reaching a market cap of over $300M. Michael has been directing sales and engineering teams in the systematic pursuit of identifying market opportunities and developing disruptive solutions for two decades. Prior to Epilog, Tempest Microsystems pioneered the user-friendly OS for digital recorders in the security space.
Michael has authored nine patents and co-authored numerous scientific publications. His early research was in super-computing, vision-based systems for the detection of dark matter and exotic particles at UC San Diego, Cornell, Stanford, Fermi Lab, and CERN (Geneva). He has collaborated with some of the brightest minds on the planet (Nobel laureates now), such as John C. Mather at Fermilab and Peter Higgs, after whom the "God Particle" is named (confirmed at CERN in 2012).
