Mike is a partner at GFL Systems and has been a member of the team since 1997. He has been a technology junkie since an early age. Mike likes to joke that his dad, who worked at IBM in the 70’s & 80’s, gave him a keyboard instead of a baby blanket. Mike started building computers in 1992, well before most households had personal computers. His love for technology has turned it into a fulfilling career and he has successfully managed networks with hundreds of users. He also has been a manager and developer for several custom, ground-up applications in a diverse selection of industries. Mike has a love for learning how his clients’ businesses operate and developing software applications and processes that make their businesses more efficient and profitable. When Mike is not at the office, you can find him spending time at home with his wife and two children, playing a round of golf, or assisting his wife at one of her events throughout the Central Coast.
