Mike‘s true passion is travelling to interesting locations around the world. So far, he’s visited over 45 countries, and recently completed a big “bucket list” item by concluding his goal of seeing all “Seven Wonders of the World.”
Mike’s wife, Karen, is TCU’s director of international admission, a perfect fit for their love of travel given that she visits 15 to 20 countries each year while recruiting for TCU. When not travelling, they mostly prefer staying at home with their dogs, and enjoy bike riding, hiking, cooking and spending time outdoors.
