English born and raised, Mike's interest and expertise in telecoms and technology stems from his school days, An entrepreneur from his late teens, Mike spent 20 insightful years in both mobile phone and commerce markets in the UK, but the call from the mountains, lakes and year-round abundance of outdoor activities saw Mike up-sticks to Canmore, the Canadian Rockies in 2006.
Although a self-confessed work-a-holic, Mike will always allow time for the outdoors. Passionate about exploring Western Canada's pristine mountains, hiking, mountain biking and carving it up in the snow, this Brit makes the most of his home in beautiful Canmore, Alberta as well as regular visits to Vancouver- especially when the sun is shining!
