Hi! I’m Mike. As a strategic thinker, experience designer, and creative writer, I strive to live and create with intention and inclusivity.
I believe the world has forever changed with the advent of the internet, yet we as humans haven’t at all figured out how to manage our always-connected, constantly-communicating, rapidly-evolving 21st-century lifestyles. We’re more connected than ever and live in the midst of an abundance of knowledge, information, and access, yet we’re more overwhelmed, distracted, and lost than ever before.
Believing deeply in the power of human connection, I see authenticity and humility as keys to building fruitful, lasting relationships. I strive to regularly express gratitude and approach situations with optimism. Similarly, I believe empathy, compassion, and mindfulness are some of the most powerful tools we have as leaders—and as humans—and strive to bring their powers to the entirety of my life.
My wife and I live in Philadelphia where we’re actively involved in the creative, technology, entrepreneurial, social impact, food and wellness communities. My heart is in the wilderness, which we frequently explore through camping, kayaking and hiking adventures. Nature, serenity and mindfulness are my favorite escapes from bustling city life, and we’re always looking for new places to explore and adventures to set out on. And campfires to enjoy!
I love meeting new people and really getting to know you, so please reach out to me any time! The best way to get to know me is during a walk around Philly, or Twitter on the interwebs.
