Michael O’Brien is a lifelong entrepreneur who creates processes, codes, builds teams, hacks results, and aims for really solving the root of a problem versus puffery.
Michael has been a web designer and developer since the ripe age of 16. He has been the CTO for a magazine and TV show; co-founded The Open Source Project, a collaborative workspace; and been project manager and team member on numerous mobile and web apps as well as technology projects.
He partnered with Charles on a successful digital marketing venture as they bootstrapped their way to success! A Phoenix native, Michael has been heavily involved in nurturing the start-up community in Phoenix and sharing his experience.
When Michael isn’t hacking something together or ammending his Trello…which isn’t often…he’s probably sipping coffee at a local coffee joint or riding his orange vespa.
Chad Porter is the story-teller of the trio. After a few years in Hollywood and having a script optioned by an Exec at NBC, he returned to Phoenix to start a family. He stumbled into sales, start-up tech, and digital marketing and hasn’t looked back.
Since his successful time at eBay, he’s been a speaker at the NOAH and SES conferences, led product development, and created predictive models using large data models.
Chad loves building teams by the axiom of “surround yourself with people smarter than you.” He’s grateful he found Michael and Charles who epitomize this and co-founded Invisume with him.
When he’s not trying to use tech to solve problems, there’s a 95.7% chance he’s spending time with his wife and two little girls or watching the Cleveland Browns.
