Mike has been calling square dances since 1968, when he picked up a microphone for the first time and called at a dance in Penticton, BC. He moved to Alaska the next year and got his first regular gig calling for the Dudes and Dames Square Dance Club. Since then, he has called for a number of clubs, including the Devils and Angels youth club, Aurora Squares, and the Paws and Taws club in Palmer. He currently calls for the Denali Dancers and Stardusters square dance clubs.
Mike is also an accomplished round dance cuer.
Besides calling for two clubs, Mike also teaches new dancer lessons, and conducts party dances for all occasions.
Mike and his wife, Debbie, have been married since 1979, and live in Anchorage, Alaska.
