Michael WashinushiChief Financial Officer
Consummate finance guy at work and home. I enjoy building back of the napkin financial models or spreadsheets on everything. Life outside of excel consists of family with a great wife and two energetic kids, travel, cycling, skiing and jogging. Striving towards objectives, teamwork, having fun and lots of informal / formal communication is part of my daily regimen.
