Micah is CEO and Chief Community Caretaker of Graphicly. Graphicly is a cutting-edge entertainment and digital content publishing platform designed to deliver what authors and publishers need to share their work with audiences.
Previously, Micah was VP, Business Development and Chief Evangelist for Lijit Networks (acquired 2011), the sixth startup Micah has been involved in (having sold his last startup, Current Wisdom, in the beginning of 2007).
Focusing on business development, online marketing and advertising, and product strategy, Micah was instrumental in the growth of companies such as MyPersonal (now Synacor – IPO), ServiceMagic (acquired by IAC), Indigio Group (acquired by Bridgeline Software) and other less successful startups, such as Kozmo.com.

A frequent speaker and with appearances on CNN, Wired and articles in many of the leading blogs, including Mashable and ReadWriteWeb, you can read about Micah’s philosophy of success through failure here on his blog, Learn To Duck.
