Hi, I'm Michael 👋

I write software with one primary goal in mind:

I’m interested in writing software that evolves education, real estate and finance. These sectors are just starting to adopt the potential of modern technology.

I believe in product based companies. The most impact can be done with an evolutionary product.

My company, Naavi, is what I focus on every day. Software has the potential to upheave every industry, many of which are just getting started.

Let’s do it


New wave products for education

I started Naavi, along with Blake Seufert in 2012 to create software that can transform education. We're only getting started, but our products, such as iNewsletter are already changing the way schools communicate with their community.

Real Estate Investment

Investment in one of Australia's most valuable assets

From time to time, I invest in real estate development projects. Most of these have been land developments/subdivisions, but I am keen to explore commercial property in the future. Australia has one of the strongest real estate markets across all developed countries.
