Mike was born and raised in Kersey, Elk County, and graduated from both Elk County Christian High School and Clarion University. He lives in Dubois’ Treasure Lake community with his wife, Valerie, and their two children, Dante and Michaela.

Mike comes to state government from a business background. His more than 30 years in the powder metallurgy industry began in 1986 at Laurel Manufacturing in DuBois. In 1997, Mike left to start up and co-own the first of two highly-successful businesses - Product Assurance Services in St. Marys, a world-class provider of laboratory and nondestructive testing and services. While there, he co-founded Proform Powdered Metals in Punxsutawney.

In 2015, while looking for new opportunities, Mike was asked and accepted an invitation to serve as headmaster of DuBois Central Catholic School, which he did for three years in learning the area’s education needs. After a brief return to the powdered metal industry at Clearfield Metal Technologies, Mike chose to run for elected office in the 75th Legislative District.

Mike sits on the Penn Highlands Healthcare Board of Directors and the Penn Highlands Community Nurses Board of Directors and previously served on the boards of Goodwill Industries and the DuBois YMCA.
