Mike is a native to Pennsylvania. He grew up in the city of Horsham and attended Hatboro-Horsham High School just north of Philadelphia. As a kid Mike was always fascinated by thunderstorms and airplanes. While most kids in high school were going for their driver’s license Mike was going for his Private Pilot License. He flew Cessna 172’s out of Wings field in Blue Bell, PA. It was at this time he realized his real interest was in the weather.
