Hello, I'm

Mike Rama

and I'm bananas about making people smile and bringing
ideas to life.

About Mike

I'm an experienced generalist of several trades, eager to make the best of my time by helping people achieve their dreams and aspirations, and in turn, make our local communities & our planet a great place to live.

My "4 Ps" Philosophy

  • Embrace People - collaboration is a powerful force and so is laughter.

  • Welcome Problems - they are great starting points for conversation, solutions, and discovery.

  • Fight for the Planet - she’s a beauty and deserves better.

  • Search for Possibilities - ingenuity is the road to progress.
