Mike at his core is an early adopter. He is out in front of trends and best practices -- your go-to guy for knowing what works, what doesn’t, who's doing what for whom, and for how much.
Somehow Mike distills all this information and translates it into beautiful, deceptively simple, sophisticated interfaces that you can’t keep your hands off of. He makes it his mission for users to enjoy the experiences he creates.
Mike raises the bar for what is viable, setting the highest standards and goals for his team. He clearly articulates his vision, and then leads them to it.
I design the entire experience our users have with the brand at all touch points, from product, to branding, to marketing, for mobile and the web.
Describe what you have done, what you are doing, and the kinds of things you are interested in.
I am the founding employee of BlueLine Grid, where we created "The Grid", a first of it's kind database containing the profiles of more than 11 million public safety professionals in the United States. The Grid was designed as the discovery engine within BlueLine Grid Messenger, our set of mobile apps for iOS and Android, providing discovery and messaging, critical alerts and location tracking for public safety agencies. To date there are a range of local and major national law enforcement and government agencies piloting the apps with a broad rollout planned in the next 6-12 months. I'm incredibly proud of the work I've done with BlueLine Grid to help transform how public safety communicates and collaborates, especially in a crisis situation.
