Resided in Big Sur, graduated from Cal Poly with degree in Biology/Ecology and Systematic Biology and Montana State University with a major in Fish and Wildlife Management. Worked at Santa Barbara Zoo with the Condor project for 3 years then moved on to California Condor Recovery Project.

The 35 year old Biologist was a field supervisor for The California Condor Recovery Program at the Vantana Wildlife Society. His work with the Condors for the last six years was really what he loved to do and he cared very strongly for the recovery of the big bird. Mike had gone into Los Padres National Forest to check on one of four young Condors in a soft release program and verify safety of the bird from the strong winds. He found all four Condors safe and was on his way out of the forest on his ATV when a tree was blown down stricking and killing him.
