About Michael Rihani

I work as a Staff Product Manager - Supercharger UX at Tesla. I am passionate about sustainable energy, autonomous vehicles, bitcoin, and delivering happiness. I have been an entrepreneur since I was 5 years old and I enjoy starting and building consumer internet companies.

Tesla's Master Plan, Part Deux is to:

  1. Create stunning solar roofs with seamlessly integrated battery storage
  2. Expand the electric vehicle product line to address all major segments
  3. Develop a self-driving capability that is 10X safer than manual via massive fleet learning
  4. Enable your car to make money for you when you aren't using it

I love my family and friends more than my work.
