The High Tech Texan

The High-Tech Texan® Michael Garfield wears many hats…and never has a hair out of place! If it beeps or buzzes, goes fast or goes down smooth, Michael has an opinion and a broad audience who depend on him for his expert knowledge and insight. Michael is the go-to resource for many media outlets, providing easy-to-understand commentary, answers and recommendations for technology and consumer products. Michael gained experience in the communications, marketing and promotion areas with companies like Clear Channel, Microsoft, MCI, Bank One and ProServ Sports Management. But it was his first job out of college that propelled his drive to evangelize products in front of the masses. Hired in 1989 as one of the youngest TV Show Hosts on QVC Network, Michael honed his skills as a product pitchman guiding viewers across the nation through products like fine jewelry, hardware, household items and – of course – electronics. Michael is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and holds a bachelors degree in Communications, Radio-TV-Film. A true Eagle Scout to this day, he works diligently raising funds and awareness for many causes and charities including MDA and various children’s organizations.
