About Mike

I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-some. I have enough skills to be a one-man-show, but ideally I need a partner who is a specialist, particularly in development/programming. I can code, but would rather concentrate my time and effort into product development/R&D, strategy, and marketing. I also know how to run day-to-day operations of a business.

Ideally you would be passionate about the automotive enthusiast community. The mission of the business is to support this community and the innovators in this space-- the DIYers who work on their own cars and fabricate custom parts for their use that could benefit others (and earn them a few bucks in the process...). The mission is to encourage and sustain this community of passionate and innovative enthusiasts.

I am also interested in joining other ventures in real estate or online/tech.

My background varies from training/community development, to web design and programming, to real estate private equity, and corporate finance. I have a liberal arts undergrad degree and an MBA: I dabble in everything. In my heart I'm a car guy and my passion is community building and social empowerment.
