My name is Michael Rouse and I am a recent transfer from Greenville, SC. I have lived and worked in the southeast my whole life and have experience in sales, marketing, business development, and project management across multiple industries. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to move out west and on January 1, 2020 I finally made the move to Denver. More importantly, I was able to pursue a role with Southpaw Media that would challenge all areas of experience I have developed over my career.

I transferred to Denver with my dog, Charlie, and I love everything Colorado has to offer. I love that I can get sunburn and frostbite in the same weekend and that a completely different world is just a few minutes away from the city. Although lifetime Dever-ites may disagree, I love that there are so many new arrivals to the area. I feel there is a common sense of adventure out here. Almost everyone I meet, regardless of demographic, is here to connect, explore, and get things done. 

My introduction to Denver has been great so far. I am excited about what Southpaw Media and I can achieve in our new city and I am intent on having a positive impact along the way. The Firestorm organization has been a stand-out from all of my networking pursuits, even during the Covid response. Creating both a personal and professional connection while focusing on opportunities outside of the group is networking done right.

As the world opens back up I can't wait to start meeting everyone in person again and I really appreciate the chance to be a part of the Firestorm team!
