Director and Lead Faculty of the Midland University Code Academy
Mike is an independent contractor focusing on full-stack development and tech consultation. He came to the tech world in a bit of a circuitous route. After being a casual coder for years, he left a successful 15-year career in retail management and jumped headfirst into the world of coding. He knows first hand that a career change into tech is obtainable at any stage in life.
He has a passion for coding and a drive to help others learn to code as well. He loves sharing his knowledge and, having gone the self-taught route, he has plenty of successes (and even some failures) to share with the students to help them succeed.
