Mike, born in PA, raised in Lakewood OH, started working in kitchens when he was 16. In his early 20’s he completed a formal three-year apprenticeship plus a degree in restaurant Management. After that he worked in several large hotels and ran a very successful white-tablecloth restaurant kitchen.
In 1986 he was recruited by a Cleveland industrialist to be the chef on his private yacht and has been in private service most of the time since, on yachts and estates, interspersed with stints in some exceptional restaurants from Alaska to Maine to the Middle East, where he opened several Tex-Mex restaurants, and four years in Bermuda working for a Dutch businessman on his 189’ schooner.
