Michael Delaney

Principal Engineer

After former stints as a Flash developer, he decided to take a chance and join a social media tech startup. It’s been nearly 9 years later and he’s still kicking around - we think he just likes to have people to play nerdy board games with. When he’s not working, you might find him at home tending the backyard farm, in the kitchen cooking & canning, or traveling the world with his fiancée. As a proud guncle, he enjoys every chance to play with his nephew and two nieces.
