Interests & hobbies

Many of Mike’s clients have been with him for close to 30 years. He places high value on quality client service and building client relationships. When Mike is not focusing on his clients, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children and the family dog. Don’t be surprised if you hear him humming the latest country song, although his vast knowledge of popular music can be credited to his children. This, however, goes both ways, as his children have been known to hum a song from the 1970s or 1980s. Mike also enjoys a night at Target field watching a Twins game.
