Mike's passion for the outdoor started at a very young age when his parents took
him camping all over Maine and parts of Canada. During junior high and high school Mike spent
his summer living in a tent by the family camp at Beech Hill Pond. With three brothers and a
sister there was always someone to paddle the canoe or canvas kayak.
Mike is a Registered Maine Guide in both Sea Kayaking and Recreation. He also is an ACA Level 4 Instructor, and a Wilderness First Responder.
During the school year Mike can be found at Central Maine Community College teaching in the Business school or working with the school's Outdoor Club.
Mike's first passion is his wife Lisa and their dog Mia. OLTOA is extremely grateful to Mike for creating and managing our website from 2013 to 2020.
