Mike received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in English at Xavier University. He also earned his teaching license from the State of Ohio in that time. Mike taught English at Moeller High School for ten years and served as a House Dean for six. Mike left Moeller to work at Purcell Marian as their Dean of Student Life because the Mission of the school is the Mission of Mike’s life – bridging gaps through education. Mike has also served as an affordable housing advocate and project leader for eleven years in Over-the-Rhine (OTR). OTR is the nation’s largest, intact urban historic district that, for years, underwent severe disinvestment. Mike worked to rehabilitate buildings for those who needed affordable housing.
