After many years promoting sports events, Mike jumped online to help build EngineWorks; a search marketing agency providing search engine optimization, paid search marketing and social media campaigns.

As a proponent of ethical business practices, Mike is the Chair of the Oregon in Ethics in Business Awards as a member of the Rotary Club of Portland. He also shares his online marketing expertise as an Advisory Board Member and Past President of SEMpdx, a professional business organization for the search marketing industry. He was honored in 2005 as a recipient of the Portland Business Journal’s prestigious Forty Under 40 award.
Mike’s marketing experience began when he served as Marketing Director for the Oregon Sports Authority and was charged with bringing events to Oregon and as Director of the largest sporting event in Oregon, the 2005 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Mike set records in net revenue for the event and generated millions in economic impact for the city.
