Technical Product Owner


Realizing his passion for working in public safety, Mike began his journey in the field as a campus safety dispatcher for Azusa Pacific University for a year before transferring schools. After graduating from the University of North Dakota, he transitioned to working for Rural/Metro ambulance as a system status controller, where he still continues to work part time. After a year in dispatch, Mike spent some time working as a Rural/Metro transportation coordinator based at Palomar Medical Center before coming to FirstWatch.

“I enjoy helping to create cutting edge public safety technology, and seeing how FirstWatch is able to make a significant impact on patient care and quality improvement,” Mike says.

When Mike is not at work, he spends his time continuing to work as a commercial pilot and flight instructor, and also plays the piano and guitar. Love a good beer? Mike brews his own specialty beers throughout the year.
