Mike White was born and raised in Toronto. He worked for five years in children's television animation before moving to San Francisco in 2008 to make mobile games and apps. In 2018, after getting nachos for lunch, Mike and his girlfriend, Carol, were walking around an outdoor mall and met a cute little puppy at a pop-up adoption event. After much consideration they adopted the puppy and named her Melody, and her delightful and infectious personality became the inspiration for Mellybean.
