Mike first fell in love with aviation after getting an opportunity to fly in a WW2 replica fighter plane when he was 16. He has spent most of his life performing on stage and screen as well as training young performers in theatre. The longing to be back in the sky was only matched by his love of the stage. Shortly after college, Mike took a job in South Korea to teach students English through live theatre. In South Korea, he was even part of an award winning hip hop comedy trio called the EV Boyz. He returned to the states to be the artistic director of a children’s theatre in legendary Butte, Montana. Finally returning to Colorado, he pursued his career in aviation. His charismatic personality and passion for teaching make learning to fly fun.
