Over the last three decades, Mike built a successful career steeped in research and the practice of design and software development using agile tools and methods.

After leaving Forrester, Mike became the Chief Customer Officer at DigitalML. In this role, he shaped the technology vision and product implementation that enhanced the integration and delivery of omni-channel experiences, core system replacement and eCommerce/store integration for the likes of Capital One, T-Mobile and Walmart. He also worked with clients to improve customer experience through effective design and use of application programming interfaces built on robust analytics and data.
