Before Co-founding Three Chairs with George, Mike Compton was a communications/ media production graduate from Michigan State University. As a senior at MSU he was able to get his first producing experience with Red Bull Energy Drink, producing their “Lawn Shorts” student film festival. He produced the festival and along with 5 other students won the chance to produce a film within the festival. That was it for him, he knew what his calling was.  He left my MI home base in 2001 to start a multimedia career in Tampa FL.

He mostly enjoy meeting new people, connecting dots and helping companies of all shapes and sizes navigate through the multimedia spectrum.
As a Husband to a native Michigander, a Father of Twin Boys, 2 cats and a dog, he is always on the go. If he is not out networking, in the studio or in the edit suite, you can best believe he is chasing down my boys or changing a diaper.
