After flirting with a real job for a few years Mike was saved by a detour to college to study Radio&Television. He loved it, graduated then moved to a creative production house. He acquired hands on production, writing, editing and voicing skills in a close, at times intense, working environment. In his brief 18 months there, Mike learned a ton and shared a Clio award for best commercial producer as well as a high degree of notoriety for production and voicing. Mike then hitched his wagon to radio where his love for music and doing something fun for a living came together. At that time, CHEZ-FM was everything radio could be. Powerful, progressive and deeply connected to the community.
Within and outside of his radio gig Mike has voiced thousands of projects. Television series, commercials, corporate presentations, books and more. His command of both French and English languages allowed Mike to become a sought after MC.
Once away from radio Mike got involved with Galaxie Pay Audio(pre Spotify). As Program Director he helped develop & build this successful music multi channel service which grew to be a very big deal.
Not being 9-5 afforded flexibility. Some of his higher profile gigs included on cam Announcer for the 2003 Juno awards, Arena announcer for the Ottawa Senators and the weekly host of HGTV’s “Buy Me” . In fact too many “events” to list.
In 2003/2004 Mike designed and built his own home and included an office/ recording studio that allowed him to work from home.
Mid 2009 Mike transferred his knowledge to Stingray Digital in Montreal as VP of Content with the intent of growing the many unrealized possibilities of Galaxie. While there, he helped rebuild the service and merged with a competitor. He help build all kinds of channels and offerings. Stingray was a blur of mostly great people and high level achievements. In his brief reprise with the CBC, Mike helped with another refocus of Radio 2 and other related music projects before it was time to gladly hand the outdated laptop back in.
Today, Mike is a happy full time voice actor and communicator…endorsed by some of the very best.
When not addressing the mic, Mike is skiing, cycling, helping friends and family or listening to the music he loves and travelling the world with Colleen, his life partner.
