Mike is an avid hiking fan, having grown up in the Bronx, where trees are few and far between. The serenity and absence of cell signal is where he does his best self work.

Mentoring and giving back are passions of his, as he wouldn’t have gotten to where he is without the help of others who came before him. He is a current mentor to high school students via Good City Mentors.
