Michael Armstrong has an imposing silhouette when garbed in his duster and his proper hat, but a warm and hearty handshake will immediately belay any misgivings.
When not working with technology, he relaxes by listening to his formidable music library, running around in the woods with a GPS looking for a Geocache, or stomping around railroad switchyards taking pictures of rolling stock.
He enjoys all manner of live music shows, and is especially tickled when the band plays louder than his tinnitus.
