Mike Koehler, Founder and Editor
Hopefully the content of the site speaks for itself and there isn’t too much more for me to explain about myself – but here goes. After a long career in the journalism business, I now ply my trade as a social media strategist and digital marketer in Oklahoma City. I started my company Smirk New Media in 2010 at a table at Starbucks, and have grown it to one of the largest agencies in the state.
At home, I am blessed with an amazing family. Gaylee, my wife of nearly 20 years, is a teacher, church volunteer and a full-time saint. I have three terrific kids – Malcolm (13), Maura (9) and Thomas (6). People’s Church is our church home in OKC, where we have attended since 2007. I was baptized (third time’s a charm!) in 2011 and serve as the volunteer moderator and host during our online, live-streamed experiences on Sundays.
I blessed to be surrounded by family and friends who inspire me to grow closer to God and a God who provides me a model of what victory and love really look like.
