Managing Director, Third Light
Michael Wells is the founder of Third Light, a specialist digital media library that simplifies the management of media files. Michael started the company in 2002 as a Cambridge University graduate, when he connected the Linux, web software and databases of the era to form the foundations of a modern media library. He has been involved in every aspect of the DAM revolution in the subsequent 16 years, and has a hands-on role in a team of 20 staff. Michael is a passionate believer in simplicity and honesty in all software products, and is a friendly face known personally to Third Light's 500+ customers as part of the integration and consultancy team. Michael is also the keeper of the office morale officer, Ella (a Beagle), who has been credited with winning over the hearts and snacks of visitors to the company HQ in Cambridge - and is featured in many of the example photos Third Light uses in their 30-day trial!
