Mike grew up as part of a military family, and was born overseas in England. In 1980, his father then was stationed at Malmstrom AFB, in Great Falls, which brought Mike and his family to Montana. Mike enjoyed growing up in Great Falls, and called Montana home. In 1988 Mike’s father accepted a job with Boeing Inc. after retiring from the military, which in turn took him to Washington State in 1988. Mike accepted the move since this is part of being a military family; he was accustomed to the change. However his Montana roots beckoned to him. After graduation from Kent-Meridan High School in 1996, Mike worked and saved and moved back to Great Falls, Montana in 1997. Mike started working at I-State Trucking “Freightliner” in 1997 and has worked there for the last 18+ years.
