Michael Rios has been a pioneer of social change for more than 4 decades.  In the mid 1960’s, while still in high school, he founded a polyamorous commune that lasted 30 years, at a time when neither concept was common even among the most radical thinkers.  By the early 1970’s, he had cofounded several alternative schools as well as the first domestic violence hotline in the US.  By the late 1970’s, he had started one of the first computer stores as well.  In the early 1980’s, he founded a social service agency, and personally took in over 100 teen-aged foster children. 

He calls himself a “parallel entrepreneur” and practical visionary, starting businesses, non-profit organizations, and social networks, and helping them become economically self-sufficient.  Over the last 10 years, he has focused on developing the concept of New Culture as a powerful tool for social change and effective social action.  Most recently, he has taken the concept of intentional community to a new level with the creation of an Intentional Village.
