Born and raised a native of the Pacific Northwest, Mike is part of the world-renown Seattle legacy of rock-n-roll spirit.
Co-founding bands has been in Mike's blood since his early days in high-school.
He even lived in Portland Oregon for a while in the 80's, where he was introduced to the Chicago Blues sound by a fellow guitar-playing pharmacist (Yes, we did say pharmacist).
Co-founding Red Herring with his compatriot Jon Garberg in 1994 was the next logical step in his legacy. Mike is right where he needs to be;
he seems to have the innate ability to imbue a Herring show with a certain "electric bliss" that you can't quite put your finger on, but you just know is there.
