In 2007 Michael founded Montague Webworks with Patrick Davis to continue developing and selling his website platforms RocketFusion and Community Server. In January 2011 Michael took over the company. He continues to market his super-simple RocketFusion CMS to mid-sized and small businesses in Franklin County and Hampshire County in Western Massachusetts, passing the 100 RocketFusion-based site marker in December 2011.
