Hi, my name is Michael
I've been passionate about software development for more than 25 years.
For the last 13 years, I've been working on the open source Neo4j graph database filling many roles, most recently leading the Developer Relations team, working on DX initiatives and organizing the Neo4j Labs efforts.
As caretaker of the Neo4j community and ecosystem I love to work with graph-related projects, users, and contributors.
In general I enjoy many aspects of programming languages, learning new things every day, participating in exciting and ambitious open source projects and contributing and writing software related books and articles. I spoke at numerous conferences and helped organized several of them.
My efforts in the Java community got me accepted to the JavaChampions program.
I'm running a weekly girls-only coding club at our local school.
