He is a leader in the Transmedia community in New York City and co-founded the not-for-profit Immersive Media community StoryCode. Mike's background spans design, programming, advertising, program management, and filmmaking. He is an expert at bridging the gaps that often exist between traditional business divisions - a universal translator of sorts.

His work has received numerous awards (One Club Pencils, W3 recognitions, and Webbys) and is widely published. He speaks regularly at leading cross-media conferences including Storytelling 1.X, AD:Tech, and Storyworld. Mike is a lifelong musician and has played in a variety of indie/punk rock bands. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Miami University and is an avid fly-fisherman and doting father.
