A Reading, Pennsylvania, transplant, Mike spent the bulk of his professional career in the radio and music promotion business, even spending time as an on-air disc jockey. This brush with minor celebrity afforded him the once-of-a-lifetime opportunity to fly (as a passenger) with the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels. Now happily retired, Mike stays in touch with his musical roots, keeping up with the latest releases and following the charts in search of the next hit record. Inspired by the shining example of his late parents, Ron and Duraine, Mike approaches every day with gratitude for the impact they had on him and still strives to make them proud. When not pursuing his musical passions, Mike is a sports enthusiast and a life-long learner. “I try to learn something new everyday because today is the first day of the rest of your life.”
