As a senior force reconnaissance Marine, Mike witnessed first-hand the instability caused by
the need for basic resources like food, water and electricity in communities overseas. This
led him to encourage the development of technologies capable of producing these resources
when he returned home, capitalizing on sustainable integrated systems that can easily be turned
into hubs for a community, marketplace, school or hospital anywhere in the world.
