Founder | Chief Operating Officer
Michael Brinn has always been fascinated with the way things work. In more than a decade of support to government customers, he has: designed and developed systems engineering analyses and advanced modeling and simulation; designed and assembled autonomous aerial vehicles; performed systems engineering, integration, and analysis of satellite communications programs, and performed visualization analysis of complex data sets. From the hands-on to the theoretical, Michael is able to combine his curiosity, logic, and engineering skills to successfully address complicated challenges in a wide variety of disciplines.
Michael's focus is on technical innovation and methodological development.
He constantly strives to refine the company's analytic processes, to expand the breadth and sophistication of Evince's capabilities, and to incorporate--or develop--new systems and tools in support of the pursuit of data-derived knowledge. His commitment to the discipline of data analysis and to meeting the current and future needs of Evince Analytics' customers make him a role model for the entire company to follow.
Before co-founding Evince Analytics, Michael worked for TASC, Inc., in Chantilly Virginia. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Systems and Information Engineering from the University of Virginia. In 2009, Michael received a Juris Doctor degree from Concord Law School in Los Angeles, and subsequently passed the California State Bar Exam.
Michael makes his home in Northern Virginia with his wife, two sons, a daughter, and an enormous dog. He enjoys international travel with his family, and is a fan of both world and American football. He spends his fleeting moments of free time wishing he could play the drums that are currently accumulating dust in his basement.
