My Creative Works


"Mike defines himself by his can-do attitude. He applies his technical knowledge adeptly to the problems of the day and uses his foresight to anticipate the oncoming issues of the future... "

Ralph Crozier, President / StrategyPlus.net

"Mike volunteered his time and expertise to serve on the transition "Idea Team" for my incoming Annapolis city administration. He served on the Government Structure team and dived right in to focus on IT issues throughout city government. Mike's expertise was invaluable, but so were his personable nature and people skills. A transition between mayoral administrations can be a somewhat anxious time for city employees, particularly when a group of outside citizens comes in to review how things are done and recommend changes. Mike handled his duties with professionalism and sensitivity, and I received only positive feedback from city employees about their interactions with Mike. Mike was a real asset to my transition team and I highly recommend him."

Josh Cohen, Mayor / City of Annapolis

"Mike is an outstanding IT expert; I had the pleasure of working with him from 2000 to 2009. He provides his clients with strong organizational skills and he manages multiple tasks on schedule driven projects. Mike is master at solving technical issues that look to be insolvable. I would highly recommend Mike to any of my clients."

Frank Kaye, AIA, Architect / Boggs & Partners, Former Principal

"I am privileged to commend the IT work of Michael Pachler, but even more importantly I applaud his incredible leadership within the community organization known as the Maritime Republic of Eastport. Due to Mike's tireless efforts on behalf of our community thousands of dollars have been raised to assist numerous nonprofit agencies."

Sam Shropshire, Former Alderman / Former MRE Citizen
