Roadtrip Nation
Upon graduation Mike hit the road with two college friends in an old RV to interview leaders across America and learn how they got to where they are today. That roadtrip later turned into the book, Roadtrip Nation: A Guide to Discovering Your Road in Life. Following the book launch, Mike cofounded Roadtrip Nation to offer other students that same experiential learning opportunity. The independent organization produces a variety of annual, multi-media content productions, including the annual Roadtrip Nation television series on PBS and the new Roadtrip Nation Experience Curriculum, which empowers students and educators in under-served communities to connect their education to the real world. Mike has presented at NBC Education Nation, The Clinton Global Initiative, Skoll World Forum, among other events, and participated in the Harvard Business School Social Enterprise Program in 2012.
