Hello, World! My name is Mike. I run a small business called Green Shoe Garage — a boutique product realization studio that specializes in blending embedded electronics with classic physical design. When I am not tinkering away in the lab or workshop you can find me geocaching, dabbling in photography, playing games, hacking away at my local makerspace, or surfing the amateur radio frequencies (N1HNP). But most importantly, I get to be a dad to an amazing kid.

I also help to (sporadically) throw together some blogs posts and podcasts over at Gears of Resistance. It offers an eclectic mix of news and how-to’s about all things STEAM and DIY. If you wish to collaborate on any projects please feel free to email me at mike@greenshoegarage.com or we can connect on LinkedIn or any of these other fabulous websites:
