The Tidings Team

David Mihm


David Mihm is first and foremost an advocate for sustainable digital marketing techniques for small businesses.  In 2012, he sold his former company to Moz, helping over 3 million businesses get better visibility in the local search engines.  He’s a co-founder of the Local University conference series.

David now runs Tidings and his weekly newsletter, Minutive.  In his spare time, he volunteers with and serves on the Board of MercyCorps Northwest, enjoys travel (to world-class links courses in particular), Oregon-made craft coffee and craft beer, and spectator sports of almost all kinds—go Blazers and Timbers!

Carson Baker

Lead Developer

Carson is a Ruby on Rails developer and embedded systems designer from Houston, Texas. He’s lived in Portland since 2016. On the weekend, he and his wife like to go hiking and rock climbing.


Chief Happiness Officer

Olive moved to Portland and joined Tidings in January 2018 after a brief stint in Central California. Her main responsibility is team member morale and promoting a healthy lifestyle among employees, both of which she does a superlative job with.

Like the rest of the team, she’s a small business enthusiast. Two of her favorites are For Paws and Little T Baker on Portland’s SE Division Street, where you can often find her building strong relationships with neighbors and future Tidings customers.

A true Oregonian, Olive appreciates fine farm-to-table cuisine, in particular Laurelhurst Market‘s French Garlic sausages. In her (extensive) spare time, she enjoys massages and neighborhood jogs, and plays a mean game of keepaway.

While very social in person, Olive finds social media a little overwhelming but hopes to start her own Instagram account soon.
