Founder & CEO
Michael Dowden purchased his first computer (really, a box of TRS-80 parts) at a school auction in 1986. He built three working computers out of that box, kept the best for himself, and sold the other two at almost 300% profit. This started him on the road that has led to him earning a BS in Computer Science, a MBA in Entrepreneurship, and a history of working with over 75 companies, including five he founded over the past 10 years. Michael is now a co-founder and CEO of Andromeda Galactic Solutions, a published author, international conference speaker, a Google Developer Expert in Firebase, and a Microsoft MVP in Developer Technologies.
