Mike Miles

Half-stallion, half-cyborg*, Mike found his way eastward after 24
lovely years in Denver. Mike enjoys living in the East Village of
Manhattan, rooting on his Colorado sports teams (Go Broncos!), wearing sandals in the winter, and home brewing beer. Previous to his role of Head of Social Strategy at SmartSign, Mike worked in the finance
industry. He's a critically acclaimed haikuist under the pen name,
Maiku. He can count to 10 in eight languages, including English,
Hebrew, Hungarian, French, Spanish, Japanese, German, and Pig Latin.
His lofty life goals include learning how to fly fish, acquiring
proper pizza dough spinning technique, and figuring out how to
whistle. You can find him frequently smacking his head on ceilings,
door posts, and exit signs, (he's tall) or tweeting at @SmartSign.

*Editor's Note: Since cyborgs are technically half-robot and half-human, Mike's specific heritage is quarter-robot, quarter-human, and half-stallion.
