Tinkerer, developer, executive, investor and entrepreneur building teams and companies.
Mike’s passion for engineering began when as a curious kid he would take everything apart “to see how it works.” His career in the field of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, began when he worked with NASA and the DoD. He earned a commendation from NASA for his work in machine learning with industrial robots. He worked on a variety of real-world problems that ranged from mine detection with UWB radar to navigation in GPS-denied environments. He then founded his first startup and has had the startup bug ever since. During the last 20 years, Mike has been a founder, investor, developer, board member, and advisor.
His most recent position, as an executive at the digital publishing company Remedy Health Media, typifies his experience. In this role, Mike rebuilt the technology department, introduced modern business and development processes, and helped the company through an acquisition.
Mike is passionate about building products, companies, systems, and teams, as well as mentoring and training staff.
