His stature did not remain that way for long, because he matured into a power of a man at six feet five inches.

He spent the majority of his younger years in San Diego, California. Mike is a 1977 graduate of Mission Bay High School in San Diego. After high school with some college under his belt, he worked various jobs in construction, steel distribution, and ship fitting. During this period, Mike met the love of his life, Patty Massey.
