Introduction I have a beautiful wife and daughter and two Bengal cats. I grew up in Grand Rapids, MI. I went to school at the University of Dayton (also studied abroad at Universit├Ąt Augsburg). I completed 1/3 of my masters in SW Engineering at OMSE, but bailed for a startup and haven't returned. I lived in Chicago for 5 years, but have lived in Portland, OR (best city in America) for the last 8 years and don't plan on ever leaving. I have worked for middleware product companies in engineering and strategery, as an integration consultant, and as an IT dude. http://www.linkedin.com/in/mikeherrick
