Michael Dix is Managing Partner at Intentional Futures, a Seattle-based strategy and design studio. Prior to starting Intentional Futures, Michael spent eight years at Microsoft leading product management and marketing strategy teams. Before that, he worked in Beijing for News Corporation establishing one of the first internet ventures in China, and in New York City where he helped create and then run an Internet practice at Siegel & Gale. Michael founded Intentional Futures out of a love of building things that provoke, motivate and inspire people – and ultimately make a positive difference in the world. And in his spare time Michael serves on the boards of Charity Navigator and The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas, play in a rock band, and reads obsessively.
