Michael Durante – Program Manager - So a bearded moose, a pocketwatch, and a little girl walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Didn’t you read the sign?! No shirt, no shoes, no service!”
That joke doesn’t make much sense; in fact, it’s nonsense. But that’s ok because Mike Durante is all about turning nonsense into sense (and vice-versa). And isn’t that what entrepreneurship is all about? Mike’s certainly all about entrepreneurship. He’s also a former haberdasher, a mean cook, and an aspiring farmer. He likes his milk unpasteurized and his granola homemade. And really, what more can you ask for in a Program Manager?
He hopes you enjoyed this bio.
