Mike was a graduate of Monticello High School in 1987, where he was awarded a scholarship in Art to Snow College and was active in Rodeo. However, his plan changed and he went into the Air Force. Mike ranked as an Airman at the time of his discharge.

In 1990, Mike got married and had four amazing boys. He worked at the San Juan County Jail in Monticello until 1992, and was a Deputy Sheriff in San Juan County from 1992 to 1998.

Mike was certified in Forensic, K9 and Crime-Scene Investigation – a job which he loved.

In 2006, Mike met the love of his life, Kim, and eventually married her in 2008, gaining three more children.
