About Our Company

At Jamboxx we believe everyone has the capacity to make music and strive to build music instruments usable by anyone regardless of ability. For example, our hands-free MIDI wind controller can produce wonderful tuba sounds even though the musician has neither the physical strength, dexterity or breath capacity to play a real tuba.

And while primarily designed for those with disabilities, we see great adoption from professional artists, disabled or not, seeking new sounds and new ways to express themselves musically.

In 2017, Jamboxx received a National Institute of Health Phase II STTR grant to fund a clinical trial using Jamboxx technology for respiratory therapy at Albany Medical Center in New York. Accordingly we are now headquartered at the Biomedical Acceleration and Commercialization Center (BACC) at Albany Medical College.

As soon as Mike, co-founder and President, began working on the Jamboxx it became his life’s passion. Always a musician, he jumped at the opportunity to combine his love for music with the opportunity to start a new company. Working tirelessly with Dave Whalen on all aspects of the Jamboxx since the idea was born, Mike is completely committed to bringing the ability to play music to everyone regardless of ability.

Mike has been instrumental in significant advances for the company including numerous granted US and overseas patents and the creation of new Jamboxx optical sensor technology. He is the Principal Investigator for our National Institute of Health Phase II STTR Grant that is funding a clinical trial using Jamboxx technology for respiratory therapy at Albany Medical Center.

In his spare time, Mike enjoys live music, rooting for the NY Giants and spending time with his friends and family.
