About Mike:

Mike attended Florida State University and received his BA in Theatre and an MFA in Theatre with a focus in Costume Design and Technology. He has an extensive background in the creative arts taught to him by his grandparents, mom and dad. Creativity certainly runs in his family!

Currently, his focus is teaching interested stitching enthusiasts via machine education and promotion. He offers a wide variety of classes on single and multi-needle embroidery machines, sergers, Durkee embroidery hoops, cutting machines and embroidery software. WOW! This guy does it all!!! He has traveled the world during his military days and worked for a professional theatre before moving into the financial regulatory industry. The financial industry's loss is our gain because Mike is now using his extensive knowledge in the field of embroidery, sewing, and serging to teach everyone how to use their embroidery and sewing machines to their full potential.
