– Founder & Principal

As both a student & practitioner of business and IT, Michael has combined his zeal for both and created ITbriefcase.  Through this venture, Michael marries both disciplines and enjoys working with senior management on strategy, execution and governance.  He and ITB (ITbriefcase) are new to the Denver business scene and look forward to working in this environment and making lasting connections as was the case in San Francisco.

Before ITbriefcase, Michael founded and ran

Michael holds a CPA certification (Florida), a B.S. in Accounting from the Florida State University and an MSBA (‘technical MBA’) from San Francisco State University.

In his time off, he enjoys hiking in the mountains, riding motorcycles and playing with his 3 girls.

By providing guidance, structure & leadership for your internal IT functions, generalist managers are freed from the complexities of this specialization and the organization leverages the skills of a senior-level, focused peer to further its goals.
