Mike grew up in the Pacific Northwest. He was quickly labeled a ‘class clown’ and struggled through school, finding it very difficult to concentrate on school work when pretty much everything around him seemed to be begging for a punchline. After joining the US Navy, getting married , he started to take a (very slightly) more serious approach to life. While raising three kids with his amazing wife, Jeni, Mike became very involved in Church leadership, and ministry. Finally in his 40′s, Mike decided to give in to all of the pent up comedy that had been building for the last 25 years, and started performing in open mics, and pretty much anywhere anyone would listen. Although He has now achieved a great deal of success in the entertainment world, he decided it was time to really use the gifts God has given them to more closely serve Him. Mike is a co-founder of Crosseyed Comedy.
