Mike first started woodworking at age ten with the help of a mentor. During high school, he worked as a wooden boat-building apprentice at Arey's Pond Boat Yard on Cape Cod.
Being from Vermont, it was natural for him to attend the Vermont Woodworking School. He now holds a degree in Fine Woodworking and Furniture Design.
Mike first starting sharing his woodworking skills in the summer of 2017 at Cape Cod Sea Camps and spent two summers as the Woodworking Department Head. It was there, on The Cape, that he found his love of passing on this craft.
Returning to Vermont, he started as a kids woodworking teacher in the early winter of 2020 at SCS and has taught kids and adults classes since then.
Mike is the renter monitor on Tuesday nights and is responsible for woodshop maintenance.
When away from SCS, Mike can be found enjoying and gathering inspiration from the mountains of New England.
