Ever since Mike joined us, he’s demonstrated an uncanny savvy for keeping his eye on the ball and keeping it moving, too. Originally on the agency’s martech team, now he kicks it new school with the social media gang, creating and writing ads for Facebook and other platforms. Mike also helps produce podcasts for clients and DS, writes content blogs, creates content for content marketing projects and edits the academic journal Content Theory. People say he’s quite content. Mike’s best DS moments (among many): A come-from-behind DS soccer team victory to clinch the league championship. Do you believe in unlikelihoods!? And his first day, in Lauren’s office, “She told me that if Dixon Schwabl was a person, it would have the same personality as me.” (Shhh. Don’t tell him—she says that to everyone.) If Mike was stranded on a tropical island … WAIT! THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED. On the advice of a total stranger, he lived on a remote football-field size Caribbean island with no electricity for three days. (Imagine the things Mad Dog McGinnis might do on the advice of a friend.) He brought a book to keep his mind sharp and a volleyball to maintain his athletic reflexes. Yes, the ball had a name. Sorry, it’s a state secret.
