I'm Mike and I lead with yes.
Quick-witted and blunt, there’s no wondering what’s on my mind. I believe in honesty, transparency, and candor. I'm why-driven, specializing in making the complex simple. I've never met a challenge I didn't like which has led me to a wide-range of hard skills.
- I have no sense of smell. Really. I even did a TEDx talk about it.
- I published and distributed a full-color print magazine in early 2007, about 15 minutes before print publications were declared dead.
- I played professional foosball for a bit. Yes, professional foosball is a thing.
- I'm a Rocky super fan. I even think Rocky V ain't that bad.
Don’t let the baby face fool you, I first cut my teeth in tech startups in the late 1900’s, when the internet was delivered on CD-Rom and “getting mail” was the highlight of your day.
My background is in product management, app development, user experience, and visual design. I’m a unique hybrid of creative and analytical thinking, giving me the pixel perfection of a designer, problem solving of an engineer, and the strategic foresight of an executive. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to experience the highs and lows of start-up life, the perks and monotony of the corporate grind, and the exhilaration and terror of entrepreneurship.
