A creative developer, Mike feels the best technology projects result from a balance of left and right brain perspective. Working with agencies, startups, and now Metal Toad Media in Portland Mike has led the technology side of projects for clients across many industries. He has helped and learned from Google, Lucas Arts, The Emmys, Lexus, and many other great companies.
Now a believer in the open source community and a WordPress core contributor, Mike merges skills learned from enterprise CMS systems with first-career process design & machine learning skill from Chemical Engineering and graduate Applied Mathematics work. And, the human machine interface for Dreyer's Ice Cream manufacturing system that started his tech career would have totally rocked if logic controllers could be fronted with HTML5 back then.
Metal Toad Media is a design strategy agency, and clients include The National Parks, InFocus, The Emmys, HTML Cross Platform PRoject, Cisco YouTube Channel, Point Loma, Health Research for Action (UC Berkley), Verizon, Levis, and Zing.
