More About Michael

Currently, I am the Vice President of Marketing for ClickTracks Analytics a hot Web Analytics company in Santa Cruz that makes very cool clickstream & web analytics software. Before that, I was with ProductSoft, Sesame (now ExtraView), SGI, Fujitsu, Seagate, EPC, MetaWare, Ryan McFarland, and a number of other companies.

I enjoy travel (India, Chile, Norway, China, Israel and more), riding trails with friends and family, playing electric bass, and am finishing up restoration of a 1971 BMW R75/5.

My current focus in on my family with three great kids and my lovely wife, Karen. Just a few more years until the kids are gone to university, so other adventures will have to wait!

Updates:

TLC Family Camp 2006! All Stebbins on stage.
August 2006: Took the family to Oahu for a week. What a great place. We enjoyed renting a house on the North Shore, lots of snorkeling and exploring the island.

May 2006: Ever wonder what’s really going on when the “Service Engine Soon” or “Check Engine” light comes on? In June 06, I used a OBDII diagnosis system to find out what was happening inside my BMW. Here are step by step instructions on how I identified and replaced the failing component.

November 2005: Part of it is secret, but the betting part of the method is as old as gambling itself. It’s commonly called the Martingale system. Just for kicks I wrote a PHP script that tests out the Martingale betting system. Check it out.


London, Stebbing, and Punting on the Cam

May 30 2005: In London for a conference. Stephen and Angelina were kind enough to take me around my ancestral village of Stebbing as well as Cambridge University. Here’re a few photos.
May 05 2005: Surgery is done. Now I restrain one arm for 40 days. A lotta stuff torn up in there, but I think doc got it all.For the truly sick, here’re a few shots of the procedure… Not for those with a weak stomach.

May 03 2005: Banned… Torn labrum, capsule, and possible rotator cuff in the shoulder make today my last day before surgery. But I HAD to skate one last time, albeit gently! To boot – ‘Tasha showed up at the park and and filmed the bitter sweet event.This time next year I’ll be out there and 100% better.
May 01 2005: Hey – We just returned from a great time at Disneyland – Pics are here. Stories to follow.
January 2005: We love our Lamb-Garrett clan from San Diego. In this day-trip to San Francisco, we toured a culinary school, and, well, you’ll see.
September 2004: I am a strong supporter of the local Scotts Valley Tim Brauch Memorial Skatepark. Your donations can go through Scotts Valley Parks & Rec or Sessions. Let’s give the kids (and old school) a place to skate! Grand opening was in September 2004 and we got a (as usual) great speech from Natasha. It’s been a long six years in the making, but now I get to skate my park nearly every week.

Latest reads include The Universe in a Nutshell by Stephen Hawking, Proverbs by King Solomon, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, and Waking the Dead, by John Eldredge. All highly recommended!

Latest musical attempts: Three Nighter and What I Know Now as performed by Jeff Berlin. Also, Karen, the kids and I had a great time playing at Twin Lakes Family Camp in (Big Basin) early September 04.
