Hello, I am Mike Layne!


About Myself

I grew up in a very small town (800 people) named Sophia, it is located in the southern part West Virginia. After graduating high school, I attended West Virginia University for the summer semester. I learned a lot about myself that semester and the most important thing was, lack of discipline. I joined active duty Air Force for eight years and transferred to the Air Force Reserves. I went back to school at Strayer University and worked for the United States Postal Service and Department of Corrections in Stafford, Virginia. After two years of dealing with all of that mess, I left corrections after burnout. One of my childhood friends let me know, the company he worked for was hiring in Columbia, Maryland. I became a systems engineer and still was working for the Air Reserves. My reserve job was aircraft mechanic, it didn't lineup with my communications job so, I transferred to the Pennsylvania Air National Guard. A change in careers for the Air Force meant a trip back to technical training for nine months. After my training ended, I left Maryland and moved to California. I decided to go back to school at Mira Costa College to fill some missing gaps in my education. I was working for Illumina as a prototyping engineer/technician, when contract negotiations did go well, I decided to leave and start my own business. That puts me where I am today.
