Michael Friesen - Director of Operations and Technology
Currently Director of Operations and Technology with TiffinTalk Inc and Assistant Professor at the University of Western Ontario, I am also a project manager and technology designer as well as a teacher, editor, graphic designer, and educational technology consultant. I was Project Manager for the UK "Jamie's 15-Minute Meals" app, which saw 800,000 downloads and #1 status, and I have been nationally broadcast as a musical satirist. I have lived and worked internationally for twenty years and find that I am most comfortable working with multicultural and neurodiverse colleagues. A firm believer in finding the balance between technology and ‘touchology’, I created several platforms for TiffinTalk's thousands of cards – truly a worthy challenge!
I have been awarded a utility patent for an entirely new kind of modular synthesizer. I run marathons, recite questionable poetry, write books (yet to be published), and chop wood. I am allergic to cats.
