I was on a call this week with a customer who was asking me about my blogs and wondering if I ever get away from NetFlow.   heh heh.  All work and no play make for a dull Product Manager.  Of course I occasionally get out of my office ‘cubical’. 


I went fishing recently with a college buddy of mine.  We went night fishing right off a beach on the coast of S. Portland, Maine. Look at this monster we pulled in:

A stripped bass.  He ate it.

Michael is one of the Co-founders and the former product manager for Scrutinizer. He enjoys many outdoor winter sports and often takes videos when he is snowmobiling, ice fishing or sledding with his kids. Cold weather and lots of snow make the best winters as far as he is concerned. Prior to starting Somix and Plixer, Mike worked in technical support at Cabletron Systems, acquired his Novell CNE and then moved to the training department for a few years. While in training he finished his Masters in Computer Information Systems from Southern New Hampshire University and then left technical training to pursue a new skill set in Professional Services. In 1998 he left the 'Tron' to start Somix which later became Plixer.
