What others say about me and my work

Micah is one of those people you hope to work with. He is a top-notch problem solver with a great attitude. He understands how to lead, and refreshingly, how to listen. As someone who directly reported to him, I feel that he allowed me to develop skills that still benefit me to this day. I would work with him again any day.

Jimmy FayardSoftware Engineer#

I had the privilege of Micah reporting to me for 2 years. During that time Micah proved to be a valuable and versatile member of my team by blending strong project management skills and technical knowledge. Micah is a quick learner and willing to take on new challenges. He took the challenge to learn a new platform (Salesforce.com) and lead a Service Cloud migration from a legacy platform for Seagate’s server business under tight deadlines. He also served as technical lead for my team supporting a variety of enterprise projects including the cloud migration of our web infrastructure to AWS. Micah is also a joy to work with. People love working with Micah. He is a team player and willing to take on any task to help the project. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

Micah, is a great person to work with and an exceptional developer and program manager. I had the pleasure of working with Micah for six years at Seagate and as part of several IT security related projects as well as constant improvement. As a cyber security professional, It was so refreshing to work with an IT Professional so security focused and always compliant on requirements. Micah even was always willing to help me understand the nuances of the IT World when needed. Micah will be missed as a regular and responsive go to guy to help solve difficult issues. Micah will make any team a better team.

When ever I have a Salesforce question, Micah is the first person I think of. He is an excellent mentor, great college, and invaluable resource! When I met Micah I had no Salesforce experience. With his expert guidance, he helped me create my first Salesforce App from concept all the way through Production release. Micah’s knowledge, patience, and foresight of the project goal has saved me many months of work and kept me from wasting time on dead ends. I am continually impressed with Micah’s dedication to success and look forward to working with him in the future. I am proud to know Micah and give him my highest recommendation.

I would recommend Micah to any business, across any industry.

Micah is one of those people you value working with. I worked with Micah for over 2 years at Seagate for LaCie and STX acquisition. He was the goto person for eCommerce Integration with Oracle ERP and other satellite systems. He was instrumental in migration and Integration efforts of Indirect Tax with eCommerce website. He is extremely talented, but best of all he is a great person to be around. It makes you want to solve hard business challenges with him because you know it will be a great experience and successful outcome.
