Mike’s transformative technology has earned him awards, sponsorships and jobs from NASA, Rockwell Aerospace and Intel.
Today, Mike is a member of the Board of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, the Board of the Creative Destruction Lab, the Board of Trustees at the Ontario Science Centre, and YPO.
