More often than not, Mike can be found doing something outside or being distracted by something shiny. Commuting from the very end of the Parkway East to uptown each day is a chore, but just part of Pittsburgh life. Easily distracted and always looking to experience new things, no matter how mundane, Mike's writing is sometimes irreverent, oftentimes seemingly irrelevant. Mike enjoys camping, SCUBA diving, geocaching, reading, strange music, even stranger television and jumbo paper clips. Mike is a firm believer in the power of web 2.0 and runs and contributes to a multitude of websites scattered across the internet. Oh yeah, Mike sometimes writes in the third person.
