Homegrown in the San Antonio area, Mike spent most of his childhood in Elmendorf but moved back to the metro area after graduating high school. He earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UTSA and is a proud Roadrunner!
In his spare time when conditions allow (ie. pre-pandemic), Mike enjoys volunteering at SAPCA Society events as well as staying in contact with his ALPFAmilia from UTSA to help where he can. His hobbies include a wide variety of activities like woodworking, video games, playing guitar, spending time in the outdoors, trying new foods, photography, playing basketball, watching sports and just about any “mild adventure” he can get himself into. He enjoys watching both college and professional football, specifically the Texas Longhorns and the UTSA Roadrunners as well as the Dallas Cowboys. He also loves cheering on his favorite local basketball team, the San Antonio Spurs. Some people may be surprised to learn that Mike is partially colorblind and sometimes struggles to identify certain colors. His top music choices currently include The Shins, The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones and Coldplay which he loves to jam out to with his chiweenie, Peanut and 2 cats, Bevo and Moony.
