The Brand Begins. The mission was a simple one: create a business and a brand unlike anything else. With that mission directive in mind, we decided to focus on general principles, not specific industries. In particular, we knew we needed to create a business that ventured into many areas, not just one. A business that harnessed our creativity, ingenuity, and background in consulting, engineering, technology, economics, law, medicine, and aviation. A business that lived in tomorrow, not yesterday or today. A business that concerned itself with the way things could be, not the way things were or are. And a business driven by possibilities and potential, not one governed by rules and limitations.
When all was said and done, we concluded that the only type of business that met those criteria was a wide-spectrum innovation company. And with that momentous decision, a brand unlike any other was born.
Going Boldly. To be honest, keeping one foot on the shore just isn't our style. So when we created Blue Perigee, we had to go all-in. That means we're liable to enter any consumer or business area that isn't being served, that's under-served or that's being served at a quality level beneath our exceptionally high standards.
In particular, our current and upcoming products and services include: (1) online innovation education via publications produced by Blue Perigee U; (2) General Feasibility Endorsements (GFEs) and Pre-Seed Grants (PSGs) for aerospace-related innovators; (3) innovation consulting for those involved in politics, business, and more; (4) communications & gaming using our innovative, acronym-based platform, drop!; (5) premium, AI-focused, radiology-related services, such as consulting, recruiting, second opinions, and innovation-centric business certification; (6) premier, innovation-focused advertising opportunities; (7) an exclusive, innovation-oriented membership club (in beta) that revolves around streaming video, alternative energy vehicles, on-demand aviation, private-aircraft purchasing, mixed-drink mobility, and interactive fashion; and (8) an in-house institute dedicated to frontier technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain. With a comprehensive portfolio like that, you simply can't lead the way unless innovation is at the heart of everything you do. And to get a snapshot of everything we do, just download our Company Profile Sheet.
Faces Of The Brand. It's always helpful to learn about the people behind the brand. And the right photos can make a company far more personable and relatable. But yearbook-style photos and "company mugshots" tend to do just the opposite. With these types of photos, people are often dressed alike and posed alike and the photos are usually taken in an antiseptic studio or office. As a result, you don't really learn much about the people behind the company at all. So, we've taken a different approach by showing off a little bit of our individual personalities. Because of this approach, we believe our company photos are far more natural, real, and informative.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Paul possesses a B.S. with honors from an East Coast university's School of Arts & Sciences, an M.D. from an East Coast university's School of Medicine, and advanced medical expertise gained while training at two Southern universities.
He has an extensive background in biological sciences and medicine and he is also a seasoned entrepreneur. As a self-made businessperson, he knows first-hand that merely maintaining the status quo is not a blueprint for success for individuals or businesses.
More specifically, he is a board-certified radiologist with nearly two decades of combined experience in field-level radiology, radiology recruiting, and radiology-team management. Moreover, he has worked with hospitals in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast, has served as Managing Director of Radiology Services, and has always left his mark due to his unrelenting emphasis on efficiency, quality, and professionalism. As Blue Perigee's CEO, he is the company's primary point-of-contact with respect to all radiology-related matters and he oversees the company's general business operations as well.
He is a private pilot, a member of AOPA, a car guy, a hiker, a skier, a wine connoisseur, a guitarist, an Akita lover, and an avid traveler. Over the years, he has driven and owned high-performance motorcycles, worked as a research assistant at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, served as a medical advisor on a reservation in a remote part of Utah, flown in a hot-air balloon over Napa Valley, and piloted and owned advanced personal aircraft, such as the Cirrus SR22.
Architect of Innovation & Strategy (AIS). Mike possesses a diploma from a renowned, pre-prep-school academy, a diploma from a top-ten prep school, a B.S. with honors from a Southern university's School of Engineering, and a J.D. with honors from a Midwestern university's School of Law.
Notably, he has a background in engineering (with an emphasis on aerospace and mechanical engineering), computer science, management of technology and innovation, economics, law, and consulting. He is known for having the visually creative mind of a designer or fiction author, the analytical, detail-oriented mind of an engineer or inventor, the big-picture, strategic mind of a general, and the passion and soul of an artist.
His long history of scholarship, leadership, bold thinking, creativity, and pursuit of excellence began early on and his school tenure included numerous accomplishments and awards. For example, his background includes editor-in-chief of the school newspaper, editor-in-chief of the school yearbook, class vice-president, valedictorian, recipient of a prestigious award for being the best overall person in his graduating class, dorm prefect at two different schools, head of the Parents' Weekend Committee for the School of Engineering, research assistant at a major university's science library, recipient of the Dean's Scholarship for Academic Excellence in law school, two-time recipient of a prestigious award for earning the highest grade in his law school class, recipient of a perfect score on a directed-research project in law school that revolved around the use of computer-simulation evidence in the courtroom, Law Review member for two years, including a year of service on the Law Review Editorial Board, Moot Court finalist, and graduation in the top 10% of his law school class.
True to his renaissance nature, he has a diverse career that has spanned a wide array of fields and accomplishments. For instance, his professional work experience includes energy management consulting, research into the scientific and commercial feasibility of nuclear fusion for a major university's technology think-tank, speech-writer for a law firm's senior partner, author of an article on Pacific Rim business opportunities for a law firm's client newsletter, co-author of a law firm article on international trade that was published in a major metro area's business magazine, expertise in corporate, international trade, antitrust, patent, trademark, and administrative agency law, and brand, competitive strategy, and innovation consulting for new and established businesses. As Blue Perigee's AIS, his role revolves around creativity, ingenuity, product, service, and company innovation, technology, brand strategy, competitive strategy, and company growth.
As far as his personal life, he is a photography and videography buff, a fan of classic (19th Century) Russian literature, an aviation and space enthusiast, a budding sport pilot, an early adopter of new technology, a pizza aficionado, a loyal viewer of the Tour de France, a close friend of two Alaskan Malamutes, and a life-long traveler who has visited 50 states and ten countries.
Among other things, he has flown a glider, traveled down a Jamaican river on a bamboo skiff, driven a car hundreds of miles through unfamiliar territory in central Mexico, snorkeled with wild stingrays in the Virgin Islands, traversed an ice cave in the Swiss Alps, ridden a bullet train from Paris to northern France, gone ocean-kayaking in Aruba and Hawaii, experienced a tumbleweed stampede in New Mexico, observed blue starfish on the South Pacific island of Viti Levu in the Fiji Islands, and encountered kangaroos and koalas in Australia.

September 2018. We release drop! 3.1, which features a re-designed cover.

BPIFT's mission is to keep abreast of frontier technologies, create training programs for technologies relevant to our brand, and deliver that training to company-affiliated personnel, clients, and interested third parties. While BPIFT may revolve around any frontier technology relevant to our brand, its first project is to concentrate on the application of Artificial Intelligence to the field of radiology.
April 2020. To bring fresh new ideas to politics, business, and more, we begin offering innovation consulting services through Blue Perigee Io (that's "Eye-O"). We also release drop! 6.2, which includes a new cover and more elements.
