Born and raised in Alberta, Mike spent his formative years in Airdrie. After a brief move away from the city he found himself back again and ready to raise a family. Mike is happily married with five (yes, you read that right) children. Look for his wife, Lori, with the latest addition to the family in the crowd! As evident in his multitude of children, Mike has the stamina and virility to win any match of manliness.

Throughout his life Mike has always been active in sports ranging from hockey, football, softball, baseball and more; perhaps most notably wrestling. In his high school years not only was Mike a fierce competitor, winning many a match, he also went on to hold the title of Provincial Freestyle Wrestling Champion. When Mike learned of the Airdrie Oilmen’s Association White Collar Boxing event he knew immediately he wanted to take on the challenge. With the help of the coaches at White Collar Boxing Co. and their fantastic program, Mike has been working hard to condition himself, ready to make his first fight one to remember for these fantastic charities.
