Mike began his career in the United States Air Force (USAF) serving 12 years in Europe where he was a leader in designing, securing, and managing the emerging technology of networks. His ground-breaking team developed the USAF “Barrier Reef” defense in depth concept introducing the idea of creating Demilitarized Zones (DMZs) within a network. Also, during his time in Europe, Mike helped champion, design, and implement the USAF first ever Network Security and Operations Center (NOSC) at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. These principles were adopted USAF wide and eventually by the entire Department of Defense.

He was responsible for over $30 Million in contracts around the globe and increased margins by over 5% during his tenure. After 5 years at this company Mike moved on to create his dream company Digital Beachhead.
