About Mike

Email Me

I am a highly creative Product Development professional and seasoned veteran of the toy industry with extensive experience in product engineering with an eye for design.

My career in the toy business spanned over 36 years working for Mattel Inc. During that time I engineered and managed a variety of toys from Infant Preschool, Games & Puzzles, Novelty and Boys Toys including action figures like Big Jim and Masters of the Universe to Hot Wheels play sets and race sets.

I am an out-of-the-box visual thinker versatile in product design & development including 3D modeling, 3D printing, Photoshop and Final Cut Pro.


I have teamed up with Eric Ostendorff and Keith Hippely, the founders at invenTOY. Eric is the ‘robot guru’ and has singlehandedly designed many HW race and stunt sets. Keith has dozens of patents and one of his designs is the HW version of the Mars Rover.

invenTOY is a full service inventing house with expertise in rendering, concept design, product design, product development and prototyping including 3D modeling and 3D printing. For more info, click on the invenTOY logo for their website.
