Mike joined Team Fitness in Spring 1998, after being introduced to it at an SGI leadership event. Always an early riser, Mike found the program to be the perfect mix of fun, teamwork, and sweat—Team Fitness allows Mike to push himself as hard as he wishes. After participating for five years and serving as a fill-in coach on occasion, Mike took the plunge in 2003 and became a full fledged coach.
After growing up in San Diego, Mike moved overseas with his family during high school. After two years in Taipei, Taiwan, he graduated from the International School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he lettered in baseball, basketball, and soccer.
Mike was “athletically active” in intramurals at UCLA where he graduated with a degree in Economics. Mike also obtained an MBA from Santa Clara University.
Mike is a globetrotter, having gotten hooked during his high school years. While he enjoys cultural vacations, his favorite trips are hunting animals (with a camera!): the Big Five in Kenya, grizzly bears in Alaska, tigers in India and Nepal, and gorillas in Rwanda.
Mike and his wife Kathy have been married since 1984 and have two children, Trevor and Megan.
