In 1998, he became Investment Banking Associate at Goldman Sachs before moving to Tellme Networks in 1999 as SVP of Field Operations, a position he held nearly a decade.  He was then the Special Assistant to the Secretary of Defense.

In January 2011 Michael headed his own advisory technology firm, counseling various technology firms throughout New York, including: Bureau of Trade (acquired by eBay), ChatID, Codecademy, Flipboard, FundBox, Fundera, Evolv, GroupMe (acq by Skype), iSkoot (acq by QCOM), LendingHome, Lookout, Mercaris, Oyster, RingCentral, Rockmelt (acq by YHOO), SeatMe (acq by Yelp), Signnow (acq by Barracuda), Siine, SnipIt (acq by YHOO), Taser (NASDAQ: TASR), Xobni (acq by YHOO) & ZenPayroll, ZocDoc.
