I'm Mike Groesser -- a pretty average guy with an above average passion for helping creative people do amazing things. I live in the Raleigh, NC area with my wife, Abby, our daughter, Eve, and a spunky mutt named Chelsea.
For my full-time job, I manage a team of instructional designers at a large financial services company. It's a perfect fit for me, but I still like to pursue personal creative outlets.
When I'm not working, I'm usually spending time with family binge-watching Netflix, exploring local restaurants, or walking the dog (who seems to have limitless energy). I'm also a committed Jesus-follower who believes the Creator designed each of us to create and share our creations with others.
In 2015, I realized that a lot of content meant to help creatives and young leaders is, well, a bit sleazy. Some of it is completely money focused. Some of it is too idealistic and mystical to be practical. And generally, I noticed that the focus seems to be on the same few big celebrity names.
I got to thinking, "How can I find out what real people like me are doing?" From that question came the idea for The Upload podcast. My goal is to share what I'm learning and interview people at all stages of their journeys so we can all learn from each other's experiences. I hope you'll join me for the conversation.
