About Me

Hi there!

My name is Mike Brophy and I'm a creative, detail-oriented problem solver. I love the melding of technology with all different facets of life, and the challenge of applying tech in user-friendly, aesthetically pleasing, logical ways.

I'm very passionate about the work I do, and am never satisfied with a "painting by numbers" approach, always asking questions and looking to make the end result more logical and cohesive. I'm also always striving to learn the next cool thing — a new technique, piece of software, whatever it may be — I love how quickly technology progresses and the challenge of keeping up with it.

In 2012 I was lucky enough to work on the Obama For America digital team in Ohio, which jump started my interest in the tech potential in the political and nonprofit worlds. These industries felt like a perfect fit for my knack for making powerful products given limited resources. I recently received degrees in audio and video production from Indiana University, and in 2014 expanded my design, video, photography and political organizing skills on a U.S. Senate race in Iowa. I'm excited to call Washington DC my home, hailing from the Columbia Heights neighborhood.

Other than all that, I am a:

Coffee Enthusiast. Pun Attempter. Computer Aficionado. Pre-Professional Ukulele Artist. Erstwhile Percussionist. Casual Gamer. Real Life Ben Wyatt.
