Mike Swanson started coding on an Apple II computer in 1978 when he was a child and later spent 12 years at Microsoft in technical evangelism. He founded a mobile app company in 2011, earning several Apple Editors’ Choice and best-app-of-the-year awards. In 2016, he joined a virtual reality startup and stayed on as it evolved to build cloud-based video tools. Mike discovered his aphantasia while reading a New York Times article in 2021 and has been actively involved in the community ever since.
