Michael is the founder and Chief Robot Wizard at Frostbyte Technologies, a start-up aimed at developing autonomous outdoor mobile robots. He also writes for TelepresenceRobots.Com, because due to all his interests he is constantly trying to be in multiple places at any given time. He studied Mechanical Engineering and Robotics at the University of Denver, where he originally found his attraction towards robotics. During his undergraduate studies he founded FIRST team #443 and is currently the Control Systems Advisor for the Colorado FIRST Robotics Competition Regional. Michael also has experience in industrial automation from PLC to VFD. When not working on robots, Michael gets lost (on purpose) in the mountains of Colorado.
