A father of four adults, Mike lives by the motto, “the older I get, the faster I was”. He enjoys outdoor activities with his family and tries to keep up with his three sons while alpine skiing, cross country skiing, water skiing, kayaking and biking. He also enjoys hockey and racquetball, and teamed up with one of his sons to rebuild a pair of muscle cars. He and his wife look forward to becoming grandpar-ents some day.
