Mike is a California native and a Laguna Beach resident since 1992. He graduated from UCLA with a
degree in Mechanical Engineering, followed a few years later by an MBA from UC Irvine. His career has been
varied, some would say 'eclectic' - from engineering to start-up entrepreneurial ventures. The common thread has become, “working with people”. Mike’s real estate career was sparked as a way to work locally in a field for which he has had a passion. He was supported from the onset by incredible mentoring from Ray McAfoose. He says he “feels incredibly blessed” to be able to work in a town he loves, doing work that excites him every day. Mike’s goal as a Director of the Laguna Board of Directors is to work to preserve our small town Board for the future, leverage our resources in better ways for our members, and increase our visibility to the community.
