My name is Michael Ashby (aka mashby) and I live in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, with my wife Holly. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and in 1997 started my on IT consulting firm which lead to me to Nashville by way of Topeka, KS (long story). Been in Nashville since 1999 and we love it here.

Today I am part owner in a media streaming company called EarthChannel. We specialize in providing Open Government solutions through a cloud-based software suite. As far as my passions go, I enjoy mobile technology, TV & Film, bicycling and a little World of Warcraft if I can squeeze it in.
