Mike had a long and jumbled track to a Bachelor's degree, at four different schools over a 10-year period. Working and college didn't overlap much. One had to "hand off" to the other - in sequence. The benefit was a broad education that was completed only after he was managing a small television station in Southern California. A business man/student.
Mike has created brochures for three different companies who specialize in a new excavation technology. He also has written business plans, marketing plans, SEO copy for company websites and many other written-word applications.
Mike reviewed for publication many books by Colorado authors over a period of several years. Outdoor books, history books, environmental books, travel books, all kinds. Some good, some amateurish, all written to the best of someone's ability. A great experience and a rewarding one when the author said, "You know, I think you captured what I was trying to say better than any reviewer I have read."
Mike wrote a weekly political opinion column in a local newspaper in Colorado for several years, and is a regular reader and contributor to political aggregator websites and blogs.
Mike published weekly (or more often) in local newspapers for years. He covered local events, opinion, previews and/or reviews of arts events, and political commentary.
