Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. ... To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.
Carl Sagan

Mike brings desire to work for the common good and a commitment to bring people together to solve problems.

Mike’s program and communications work at an environmental nonprofit inspired him to work in philanthropy.

“Working at Meyer, I get to be connected to so many great projects, and we get to meet awesome people who are working to improve the lives of Oregonians and to disrupt systems of oppression. They are hard-working people creating solutions, and it’s exciting to be partners with them.”

Mike served on Meyer’s Communications and Grants Administration departments before moving to the Program Team. Prior to joining Meyer, he worked on the program team at SOLVE.

Mike joined Meyer in 2011.
