Mike has worked as a Learning Specialist and Special Education Teacher in various schools around Seattle for ten years. Believing that every student is unique in their approach to learning, Mike works to help those students find their independence as they make their way through the challenges of academia. Through techniques that work on executive functioning, stress reduction and self-advocacy, he sees his students grow on a daily basis.
Prior to teaching, Mike received a Bachelor of Fine Arts and worked in museums around the country including The International Center of Photography, Site Santa Fe, Montclair Art Museum and The Bellevue Art Museum. Between chasing his daughters around and working on his new house with his wife, he still finds pockets of time to stay active in the arts by volunteering at The Bellevue Art Museum and painting in his studio.
