Born and raised in Vancouver, Mike and his wife moved to Victoria in 1978. They settled happily into Fairfield and raised their family in this ideal community atmosphere. Mike coached baseball, basketball, soccer and rugby. His wife Barb was well-known for her contributions to the local art scene and especially for her childrens' art school.
Still happily living in Fairfield, he is active in the local boating community and cruises the BC coast in search of the wily salmon. He will be happy to regale you with 'fish stories' and can even produce photos to prove his prowess in this activity.
An abiding interest in the natural world around us drives Mike's pursuit of prospecting and a life-long study of geology.

These endeavours have covered territory from the Yukon, throughout BC and as far south as Arizona and into Mexico.
