Mikey grew up working in manufacturing and did not start on his sustainability journey until college. As an undergraduate, he worked in manufacturing plants working on components ranging from mechanical heart parts and aerospace to connector cables that transmit data at 112 GB/s. Mikey has studied in the United States and New Zealand. Additionally, he will be leaving for Iceland in August to tour its various renewable energy power plants and ecosystems. Mikey is also a Co-Founder of a start-up called Scrapp which is centered around tackling contamination in the recycling stream. Through Scrapp, Mikey has placed in the UNH Holloway Competition, UNH NH Social Venture Innovation Challenge and other international competitions. This summer, Mikey is working with New Hampshire Businesses For Social Responsibility (NHBSR) to develop a “Climate Action Challenge” to educate and create dialog within the community. He hopes to continue developing himself as a young professional. In the long term, he wants to serve as a boundary worker between technology and the environment.
