Co-Founder | Motivator

joined the Marine Corps in 2009, when Brad began experimenting in the world of the Ultra Violet. Mike planned on making the military a life long career, and his military occupation specialty (MOS) was mortar man forward observer until August of 2010, when Mike was wounded from a gun shot while deployed in Afghanistan. When he returned home, the doctors told him he would never be able to walk again. He spent four months in a wheelchair and 2 ½ years doing physical therapy, and after years of hard work, proved the doctors wrong! Upon his recovery in 2013, Mike reconnected with Brad around the time that Brad was struggling with finishing his last drawing with his tendonitis. The two were friends in high school and played Varsity soccer together - yet were now both struggling with chronic pain & physical limitations just 6 years after. But Brad could still Create using his abstract painting method, and had a grand Vision for radical applications of the medium. With the motivation and support of Mike - the two kept progressing forward towards realizing the Dream.
