Mike brings over 23+ years of experience spread over a diverse set of projects that provide a deep understanding of how stuff works. His professional passion is particularly centered upon archaic structural building systems and how to modify or strengthen them to find new purpose. Mike is always thinking about how things will get built and that makes him an even better structural engineer.

Mike is a die-hard sailor and can often be found out on Lake Michigan. Otherwise you can find him taking care of his extended family, riding his bike to work, reading an old book, or reminiscing about his days as a lead guitarist and vocalist in a rock and roll band.
