Michael Van Kleeck

Sr. Manager, Technical Support Software Engineering, New Relic

By day, I'm Michael Van Kleeck, Senior Engineering Manager For New Relic’s Technical Support Software team. At night, I leave the computer, slide behind the decks and become DJ MVK, spinning all vinyl and making music and beats with a collection of synthesizers and samplers! My favorite DJ gig was Mozilla’s MozFest 2018 in London, where I spun hours of vinyl to get open source advocates dancing in the spirit of internet freedom. I play rock, electronic, hip-hop, funk, soul, reggae, country, pop- if it’s on vinyl I’ll spin it! I’ve presented my session “Innovate Like A DJ!” at several tech conferences, sharing how I apply my DJ skillz to creatively remix software solutions. My music is the sound of human and machine collaboration! You can see me live weekly at twitch.tv/djmvk
