Outside of work, Mike coaches his kids’ sports teams and competes in endurance races, having completed several marathons, an Ironman 70.3, and a 36-hour race in the Pacific Range mountains of Canada, climbing the height of Mt. Everest. Mike raised money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year campaign by getting “pushed” out of an airplane at 11,300 feet by a 1st grader fighting leukemia. Yes, he is scared of heights.
