His passion is on enabling more ways for people to participate in the global financial ecosystem. Bitcoin does just that – enabling people to send money to anybody in the world, instantly and freely without the confines of the traditional banking system. Mike believes in the power of bitcoin to do just that, which is why in 2013 he founded SNAPCARD with Ioannis (Yanni) Giannaros.

Since launch, the company went through the Boost incubator, raised $2M from industry leaders like Tim Draper, announced the bitcoin wallet and MassPay API, and is seeing 70% month-over-month growth with more than 75,000 MUA and 20,000 business customers across the globe.

Prior to SNAPCARD Mike founded FullSociety.com, a restaurant booking website that offered preferred pricing at exclusive restaurants and competed with Groupon. He later merged this with InterMedia Group in 2012. He also served as a Product Manager at Midwinter Financial Services, a practice management software company, where he developed business processes to streamline client implementations and worked on product strategy and development to resolve issues.
