Student of Brand Leadership
Chris focuses on the leadership part of branding…that leader and the surrounding group of the inside, that really cares about the right things…and builds that into truthful communication that differentiates the brand.
Black coffee, lean workouts, deeper meanings.
Higher purpose: be a challenging influence on those around me, so they become strong.

Over the last 12 years he’s built experiences for hundreds of global and local brands including some awesome ones that call Arizona home (Infusionsoft, AppointmentPlus, Shamrock Farms, and Henry+Horne, to name a few).
Marrying his passions for branding, design, and history, Mike co-founded a niche apparel brand – Taftly – that celebrates the lesser-known people and events of the United States’ political history. Apparently, their shirts are all the rage with high school history teachers.
Mike lives in very sunny Mesa, AZ with his wife and two kids. When he’s not working his ass off or hanging with his family, Mike’s usually found sipping a cup of home-roasted coffee and reading a history book (or…watching history videos on YouTube).
