Recommendations

Mike is one of the most engaging designers I've worked with. He's always open to brainstorm about a design challenge or discuss ways to push the team in new directions, and he brings a positive attitude to even the most stressful situations. Interacting with him on projects is sure to bring fresh creative ideas to the table! Kim Fisher, Chief Image Officer/Creative Director
Mike is the guy you want on your design team. He loves to twist data and ideas around, squeezing every last possibility out of them until he's positive he's found the most creative and fresh concept out there. Then he'll take those concepts and execute them flawlessly, making sure everything is perfect, down to the last pixel. He's known for his icon design and data visualization skills, which are always a combination of his great analytical and design skills. Mike is also easily one of the most humble people I've ever met, and is never overly-competitive; he's the kind of guy who will push his team to do better, not just himself. And he's an absolute riot to have around at the office. I'm always happy to hear I'll be working with him, because I know I'm getting to work with a great guy who will make sure our designs are top-notch, and I'll have fun doing it. Sara Howes, PMP, CSPO
Mike is an innovative, passionate designer. He thinks outside the box while remaining focused on creative goals. Mike is able to contribute thoughtful conceptual ideas and design executions that clearly communicate brand messages. Mike is a real asset to the creative team. Sharon Brink, Creative Director
