Executive Director

Mike’s background is in web development, but after hitting the corporate wall, he ventured into program development for RISE in 2008. Developing programs, recruiting volunteers, and building partnerships is what he’s been focused on in the last fifteen years. Mike held many positions over the years with RISE, from clipboard holder, program test dummy, and program manager, to website and everything tech guy.

"I first participated in a RISE event in 2008 at Scottish Rite Hospital. Can you guess which event? The annual Easter Egg Hunt! Paul handed me a clipboard and said make sure everyone signs this. My first task. I was hooked on the RISE mission and immediately became a regular volunteer." -Mike
