Hatched on the sand of an L.A. county beach town, Mike became a Junior Lifeguard, a Cub Scout Webelo and an Indian Guides Tribe Member—all the while dreaming that such a place as Big Sur might exist. He was a waiter-by-night/landscaper-by-day when he lured Michelle Rizzolo and Philip Wojtowicz up north to co-found the BSB. Mike looks after the front of the house and libations, enjoys bird-watching, watch repair and overseeing his sizable collection of overalls.
