As an architect, urban designer, business owner, citizen, Mike is committed to elevating the livability of the communities where he lives, works and plays. He values time with family and friends, and especially introducing his 4-year old daughter Ella to the wonders of the world around us. When outside his current home located between the Pike Place Market & Olympic Sculpture Park, Mike can be found at his Capitol Hill architecture studio, extensively walking the sidewalks of our city, or enjoying a cup of coffee at one of our great local roasters. Bicycling, snowboarding, hiking and time spent on the Coast provide him with an appreciation for the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest. Mike’s obligation to CHUC stems from deeply held aspirations for quality of life, sense of place, and sense of purpose and the belief that these are best achieved in community.
