Serial entrepreneur Michael Heyward co-founded Whisper with Brad Brooks in 2012 with the mission of giving people a place to freely and authentically express themselves. Whisper is one of the fastest growing mobile-social apps, generating over 3.5 billion page views per month.
Prior to Whisper, the LA native worked in different roles related to consumer-based marketing at startup TigerText. As a teenager, Michael was an avid Formula One Racing fan and secured the United States commercial rights for the sport.
Today in his free time, Michael spends time with friends and family, contemplates how Star Wars applies to real life scenarios, and hosts themed parties at the "Chamber of Secrets" aka Whisper Headquarters in Santa Monica.
