Mike is an explorer who hails from the valley of the Red River. He grew up singing to the ducks and frolicking through the plains.  After his time of traversing the country side he was called to sail the seas to France in order to further his study of God’s creation.  Kids who are part of student ministries (Momentum) refer to him as  ‘Big Mike’. He resides with his fearless travel partner and wife Elisabeth near the rivière Souris in Minot.  Mike and Elisabeth often discuss the finer points of bird watching and dream about future expeditions in their free time.
