Mike Moore’s interest in world affairs began in 1958 when Ben Cherrington recommended that he represent Colorado as a guide in the Brussels World Fair. After the fair, he returned to Yale and, in 1962, volunteered to the Peace Corps. He met Ann in training and got married the day before he flew to Togo to teach English in a French lycee. Upon their return from Togo, Ann invented the Snugli baby carrier, and their marriage evolved into a partnership with Ann inventing various juvenile products and later the Air Lift oxygen backpack, and Mike commercializing them.
His entrepreneurial skills have also served him well in the community service sector as chairman of Plan Jeffco creating the Jefferson County Open Space Program, and founding chairman of Jefferson County Cultural Council under SCFD. He has served as a trustee of the Colorado Children’s Chorale and Colorado Academy and a member of the Rocky Mountain Regional Advisory Board of the Environmental Defense Fund, a member and director of the National Peace Corps Association and the Council for the Arts Evergreen. He is currently a founding director of the Evergreen Alliance for Sustainability + You (EAS+Y), a director of the Yale Alumni Chorus, and a member of Evergreen Rotary.
