Mike has played in a number of well respected groups over the years, most notably, Closet Monster in the mid to late 90's, Swim and most recently, Bitterroot in a reunion of sorts with his childhood friend Eli Logan (both of whom shared guitar duties in long since defunct late 80's band "Simon Sez"). Once again, they share the stage together.
Mike is a prolific producer, engineer and guitarist who has produced and/or engineered literally thousands of songs and hundreds of full length albums since 2000. Most notably: The Spill Canvas ("Sunsets and Car Crashes", "Denial Feels So Good", a large portion of the acoustic songs on "Scraps" and will be recording their upcoming, as yet untitled disc in January of 2012), Nodes of Ranvier ("Lost Senses, More Innocence", "Nodes Of Ranvier", "The Years To Come" and "Defined By Struggle"), War Of Ages (mastering on "Pride Of The Wicked" and engineering/mastering on "Fire From The Tomb"), Angel Dean ("Light Me On Fire" guitars, bass, drum programming and additional production), Sons Of Poseidon ("North American Metal"), Bloodline Calligraphy ("Ypsilanti" - Rest In Peace Eric......), Remove The Veil ("Another Way Home").
