Mick’s mantra of “commit, then figure it out” allows for a unique problem-solving approach, bringing together a community of passionate and talented engineers, doers, makers, idea generators and storytellers to create solutions that better the world. Partnering with a wide array of companies and organizations, Ebeling not only pushes the bar on innovation, he also shares the emotionally resonating story of doing so.
