Mike was born and raised in Maryland and moved to Arizona with his wife Jill after they finished law school. Following stints at a couple large law firms and a small development company, Mike landed at Opus West in Phoenix where he helped develop industrial and office projects in the southwest. He was then recruited by Duke Realty to start the Arizona operations where he focused on big-box development and where he first met the KBC principals. Most recently, Mike was the CEO of development and management company for 14 years before reuniting with his friends at KBC in 2021. In his spare time, Mike and Jill spend most of their time catching up on sleep lost while raising 4 spirited boys, but also enjoy travelling, eating in dive bars, and avoiding rattlesnakes while hiking in the Arizona desert. Mike is also an apprentice welder and spends lots of time tending to the wounds that inevitably result.
