Michael started his career as a nuclear submarine officer aboard the USS La Jolla (SSN-701), and his experience in that dynamic and demanding environment prepared him well for life as a serial entrepreneur.  Over twenty years later, Michael brings a wealth of general management, sales and new business development experience to FeatureX.

Before joining FeatureX, Michael was founder and CEO of Tripleshot, the first game-proof block trading solution for institutional traders. Michael has a patent on the market construction technique used by Tripleshot (US 8,732,065).

Prior to Tripleshot, Michael built a variety of high-growth sales, client service, and business development teams for fast-growing enterprise software firms, including Charles River Development and Pipeline Financial Group.

Michael studied computer science at Notre Dame, has a MS in engineering from MIT, and a MA in Business from the Fletcher School at Tufts University. His current role enables him to use his breadth and depth of skills to steer FeatureX’s success, both as a pioneering technology company and a corporate front-runner.
