Mike was proud to serve in the United States Air Force. As the son of a pilot, he found his love
for flying too. His many years in Lake Elsinore, California were spent running his business, B&B
Metrology, and enjoying water sports. He moved to Oklahoma in 1996. Mike trained for and
completed his first marathon at the age of 54. He was inspired to run again in an effort to honor
the 168 victims of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. He has since continued to be a volunteer
for the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon which benefits the Oklahoma City Memorial Fund.
Mike has enjoyed his many years as a real estate broker and co-owner of The Property Center
of Oklahoma City.
