Although initially dreaming of becoming a historian, in the middle of his undergraduate studies in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Michael already understood that his real passion is computers. Today he has been a professional Flash developer working in the field of web and game development for more than 5 years .Being a researcher by nature with a strong hunger for technological exploration he constantly broadens his professional knowledge by exploring a wide range of technologies from different fields of computer science where real-time 3D engines are of primary interest. For the past two years Michael has been working for Neurotech Solutions Ltd, which is a rapidly growing Israeli startup bringing revolutionizing solutions in the field of research and treatment of ADHD, as lead programmer. Michael led the development of unique ADHD training game programs, which are based on the Adobe Flash platform powered by open source 3D libraries such as PV3D and Away3D. Although in everyday life he works mostly on RIA and desktop application development, his true passion is 3D graphics and game programming. In his little spare time Michael works with such technologies as Java3D Epic's UDK, Unity3D, and wide range of Flash open source 3D libraries from which Away3D is his favorite .Michael is a zealous promoter of cutting-edge 3D technologies, especially those that are open source, and misses no opportunity to speak on these subjects at local game industry events and conferences. Born in Russia, today Michael has lived and worked in Israel for more than 12 years. When he is not writing a code he enjoys playing around with his three-year old son David as well as reading history book and running.
