Hi, I'm Mike.

I write about consulting and business-building.

(but occasionally other stuff too.)

I’m the CEO and cofounder of The Duckbill Group, alongside my business partner Corey Quinn. You may know Duckbill from our AWS cost management consulting services, or perhaps from our flagship media publication, Last Week in AWS.

I spend the vast majority of my brain sweat working on or thinking about challenges Duckbill is facing. We’re currently in a post-traction, pre-scale phase where everything breaks in new and novel ways, so every day is a little different.

I write here about things I’m thinking about that aren’t directly related to Duckbill’s business, which mainly comes down to the practice of consulting and building small, bootstrapped businesses.
