Mike Fabrizi was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. An expat for 30 years to the Washington, DC area, he recently retired from a career including long stints with The MITRE Corporation, of McLean, Virginia, and The Aerospace Corporation, of El Segundo, California. Mike’s professional interests include complexity and complex adaptive systems, economic complexity, cities, and regenerative agriculture. He looks for ways to bridge the urban-rural divide, and likes to emphasize that which we share in common, not that which divides us. *Most* people everywhere are good. Give them half a chance and the goodness manifests itself. Mike now happily resides back home in St. Louis.
