Educated as an architect, Michael has made his career in software development focusing on the intersection of technology and creativity. Over the past thirty years, Michael has been creating artwork, and has always been looking for ways to share his work that is primarily bound in the pages of journals. The global pandemic shut down in-person art galleries and exhibits for much of the world and that inspired Michael to find a way to recreate the art gallery experience online.
In 2021, Michael took a sabbatical from his work as a technical program manager at Microsoft to build and release galeryst to exhibit his own artwork and give artists around the world an engaging, interactive, way to exhibit artwork with this simple vision:
Enable any artist to create a beautiful gallery to share their artwork with the world.
