Before joining the firm, Mike was at Standard & Poors, focusing on Applied Analytics and M&A transactions in the technology market. Clients included Adobe, Dolby, Excite, HP, and VeriSign. Prior, Mike worked on the Equity Capital Markets desk of Solomon Smith Barney in NYC, helping to bring the world’s most promising technology companies into the public markets.

Outside of the office, he can be found chasing his wife Emily, daughter Olive, son Felix, and Boston Terrier Burrito up the trails of Mount Tam.
