Myles worked with me at 11Biomics. His business development efforts resulted in valuable connections and relationships. They will literally prove to be difference makers in our company's history. You'd be lucky to keep him away from your competitors.

I met Myles at an SF New Tech meetup. His was a pioneering community and his format was the most engaging I had ever seen. I approached him to help me launch FoodBytes! based on that idea -- and we worked together for 2 years as FoodBytes! went from zero-to-one, on its way to becoming a leading name in the agrifoodtech space.

I've got a million great things to say about Myles. We were co-conspirators a couple of times, and he brings incredible energy, passion, commitment, creativity, hard-work, and positive spirit. Mylerdude is truly an amazing guy and a good guy.

Myles is Mr. Energy. He's ten people rolled into one. He knows everything going on everywhere and loves being plugged in. He's one of those people who has no enemies and knows everyone. He's more creative than almost everyone I know and always is helping someone build the next big thing. His pace is breathtaking, but when you have lunch with him you feel like you're the only person on the planet who counts. He's a gem. I've hired him before and look forward to working with him again.

Based on a recommendation from the PR team at the Omidyar Network, I recruited Myles to handle PR for the US launch of The time-frame was tight and the objectives were large - and Myles didn't cease to amaze me with his diligence and integrity in maneuvering through the challenges of a global launch. We got world-class results (NYT, CBS Interactive, and many others) and people everywhere began to see as the emerging category leader. I'd recommend Myles and his work any time.

We brought Myles on to help with the execution of the '23 LG webOS Hackathon. He was highly instrumental in its success, ultimately creating a memorable experience with our brand amongst participants and driving innovative ideas into the webOS ecosystem. The hackathon wouldn't have been as successful without his efforts wrangling and keep things moving forward. Myles is professional, creative, and kind and I look forward to working with him again!
