Back in 1986, Mike helped create an entirely new kind of advertising agency and public relations firm, one that focused exclusively on technology clients. At the time, this level of specialization was unheard of, but M/C/C proved the doubters wrong, growing into the Southwest's number-one ad/PR agency for technology companies - and one of the top high-tech advertising agencies in the country. In 2006, Mike diversified the agency's client base to include non-technology clients as well, expanding into industries such as energy, insurance, government, finance, retail, health, security and entertainment. Today, M/C/C continues to evolve under Mike's direction, blazing new trails from traditional marketing communications to real-time, digital engagement with our clients' customers.

Before founding M/C/C, Mike directed the marketing communications for Nortel, where he launched the still-popular Meridian line of business telecommunications systems.

A graduate of the University of Iowa, Mike has served on a variety of boards and remains active in local and state trade associations.
