Coach Mike co-coaches the Community Rowing of San Diego High School team with Coach Tracy. He also helps with the CRSD summer and school break camps, working with kids of all ages. He is a US Rowing-Certified Level II coach.

Coach Mike has a Master's degree in Aeronautical Science and enjoyed 21 years in the Navy as a helicopter pilot and in staff positions in operations and planning. After retiring from the Navy, he went on to work for a large aerospace and defense company. Since his retirement from that second career in 2018, he has devoted his time to rowing, travel, and CRSD. When he isn't in his coaching launch with his megaphone or in a boat training for the next regatta, Coach Mike can usually be found hiking or in the CRSD boathouse.
