About Mike:I have lived in Michigan my entire life and really have no intention of ever leaving. The winters can be nasty, long, and gray but I feel it makes you really appreciate our other seasons a little bit more. I have been married to my wife, Carrie, for just about 9 years now and have 3 children, Bria(6), Lilah(4) and Alexa(3).
One of Mike's Passions Outside of Work: With 3 little ones there really isn't a lot of time for "hobbies", but I do enjoy fishing, and when the kids don't have any sports/activities going on we do enjoy getting away by going north to the Muskegon River.
One of Mike's Favorite Quotes/Books/Poems/Movies/Songs:
“Comparison is the thief of joy,” attributed to President Theodore Roosevelt
One of Mike's Favorite Place in Michigan:
Evart, MI. Not many have heard of it but its a small town that sits on the Muskegon river. My wife's parents have a small cabin right on the river where we fish, kayak, tube and just sit and watch the river. Not real exciting, but by far one of the most relaxing places I've been.
