Back before I got all old and creepy I did time in a series of really embarrassing, big hair, glam bands. Photos from this era ensure I will never run for public office. After years of abuse, my liver decided to leave the music business and pursue a career in design, I grudgingly followed.
I’m currently the co-founder of Private Practice, a health care software company for maternity care providers. I’m also involved in some other nifty businesses. Lurid details are down below.
Most reasonable people know me as “the drain tip guy” from FamilyHack.com, a video that has been viewed over 5 million times. Suffice it to say, my mother cries herself to sleep, muttering something about her only son “sucking on the Internet”.
If you would like to work with me or just tell me what a remarkable (and humble) hunk of man meat I am, contact me at 858-225-7599 or email michael at aboutmichaeldavis dot com.
Yellowfish is the bizarre little graphic design studio I run. For over a decade we’ve duped some of the smartest companies in the world into working with us. Big throbbing Fortune 500’s and wee tiny startups are equally smitten with our enigmatic charms.
The talented designers I hire to make me look good deserve all the credit. Instead, I give them stale cigarettes and homemade Tequila. My advice to any aspiring designers is to consider a career as a condiment. Most people like mayonnaise more than an hipster designer. Mmmm…mayonnaise.
Private Practice makes the #1 selling electronic charting software for midwives. As a co-founder, I’m responsible for product design and marketing.
Building good software is hard. Impressing people who witness child birth regularly is even harder. Fortunately, we’re good enough to pull that off.
I’m too busy to write anything else here. Just imagine that this last bit is incredibly profound and life changing. Now, go outside and get some sun. You’re wasting your time here.
My foxy wife Hannah and I started Family Hack as a place to yak about how our family, with three small kids, figures out how to travel the world, work from anywhere, while home schooling our kids.
What started as us blathering on about life hacks, saving money and cool stuff we love has drawn over 1 Million unique visitors a month. This just confirms that the world is truly ridiculous.
Sometimes the nice comments from readers make my head get all puffy. These occasional delusions of grandeur make me want to buy a big boat and a sword. Definitely a sword.
I’m a major wino…just ask my liver. When my wallet began to bitch I knew I had to find a way to pay less for great wine. Along came The Wine Guild. This ingenius group is a private buying co-op that saves our members an average of 25% off the normal retail price of wine and gourmet food.
As a board member/co-owner, my duties include drinking wine, telling bawdy jokes, and letting the air out of that whole “snobby wine guy” stereotype.
