I’m a transcendental philosopher, transformative technologist, and transmedia artist.
I once crossed digital frontiers as an early pioneer of the information age. Now I’m crossing wisdom frontiers into the inspiration age.
Human virtue combined with technology can lead to a better world. Collective evolution begins with the transformation of the individual to become an embodiment of virtue.
I see a future when all systems, natural and artificial, harmonize and synergize as a healthy and coherent planetary super-organism.
To create at the intersection of technology and consciousness, and engender collective intelligence.
To inform, involve, and inspire people in the transition to a new humankind, and emergence of a planetary renaissance in culture, communications, and consciousness.
To leave a lasting legacy of hope and destiny for the future of humanity.
Passion & Process
My life’s work is a trans-disciplinary, integrative process of on-going exploration, contemplation, invention, and creative articulation. This magnum opus begins in the deepest questions of philosophy & psychology, flows through the precision of science & technology, and blossoms in the expression of art & design. Pioneering far edges of complex territories, I make maps of meaning, instruments of orientation, ways of navigation, systems of synthesis, visions of perspective, and acts of inspiration to help guide myself and others in our transition along an evolutionary pathway to a new humankind.
I’m the founder of Mythic Systems, a transdisciplinary research and development organization operating at the intersection of technology and consciousness, offering education and innovation to catalyze collective intelligence.
I’ve over 20+ years of professional experience producing innovative and ground-breaking interactive media, network software, transformative technologies, and evolutionary communications in support of ecological, sociological, economic, and psycho-spiritual projects. I’ve worked with leading organizations including AutoDesk, Harvard Medical School, the Institute of Noetic Sciences, the Buckminster Fuller Institute, the California Institute of Integral Studies, the Brain Plasticity Institute, PolyTech University of Hong Kong, the Resonance Project Foundation, Ken Wilber’s Core Integral, the Center for Electronic Arts, and many more.

Michael is an amazing teacher! Very engaging and talented. His portfolio and work samples were definitely inspiring to me and the other students — a true ‘flash guru’ — giving Michael more then the needed credibility a teacher needs, to get a 100% of attention from his students!
Great person to work for, am looking forward to working with Michael again.
We brought on Michael to create an interactive map for us, effectively the center piece of our new website. He is a pleasure to work with, full of excellent ideas to creatively solve problems that arise. We are extremely happy with our map!!
Michael is the utmost in professionalism, timeliness, ingenuity and holoism in every sphere.
I have had the pleasure to consult and work with Michael on several occasions for the Buckminster Fuller Institute. He has an expert understanding of Flash and related technologies, and also brings a wealth of knowledge on sustainability, ecology and earth consciousness.
Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with on all levels. We had an extremely difficult challenge which he attacked with relish. He quickly learned some very arcane mathematics in order to make it happen, and created something that has worked well for years. He made the tools do things they were never designed to…
Michael can be depended upon for knowledgeable, efficient and highly creative work with Flash and other advanced Web apps.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Michael on a few projects and have always enjoyed the experience. His professional integrity, combined with a consistently positive and engaging communication style, has always impressed me and made me feel that the projects were in great hands. And he is deeply knowledgeable technically as well as creative…
Michael Gaio is a ‘world citizen’ and a creative, brilliant and talented designer and developer. We worked together to create a pioneering visual tool for systems thinking and learning. With only a few guidelines and creative suggestions from me, he quickly developed an elegant, complex, and interactive ‘World Systems Map’ that allows students to learn…
Michael Gaio created outstanding computer displayed visuals for the three-day leadership workshops I conduct. He was a joy to work with because he understood the complex philosophical concepts that I was presenting, and he was therefore able to create visuals that significantly enhanced my presentations.
Michael is a true digital visionary with the chops to bring his ideas to life. He has uncommon skill in creating dimensionality in an evolving medium and the capacity to deliver magic on the screen.
