Hi, my name is Michael and I'm the Senior Platform Developer at Block Imaging. Salesforce is my passion! I'm currently working towards my Salesforce Community Cloud certification. Salesforce certification exams are notoriously difficult, so every one that I have achieved thus far has been a very proud moment. Obtaining my Salesforce Technical Architect Certification is on my bucket list.
I am married to my best friend, Amanda, and we have a son named Evan and a dog named Joben Lee. I'm originally from Traverse City, but grew up in Grand Rapids from the age of 7. I lived in Ann Arbor during my one year at the University of Michigan before transferring to Grand Valley State University in Allendale where I graduated with a degree in Healthcare Communication Systems. I've lived in Michigan my entire life, but have traveled to Europe, Mexico, and all over the US. In the future I'd love to visit Israel.
My perfect day with my family is a beach day in Holland or Grand Haven, followed by a nice dinner at Snug Harbor or The Paisley Pig Gastropub and a sunset walk on the pier. My perfect day if I'm by myself though? Sitting in my basement playing video games for 12 hours straight, followed by a marathon high-end PC build. Play first, productivity second! 😜
