Mike was raised in Detroit’s suburbs and has called Atlanta home for 18 years. After a six-year stint back home in Michigan, and then to Houston, he missed Atlanta and returned in 2016. He now works as a top 10 stylist at Helmet Hairworx Midtown, and he is an Aveda Brand Ambassador. Mike also claims to be owned by Rocky, the cat he rescued and bottle-fed for her first eight weeks. He is hopelessly in love with boyfriend Toby in Huntsville, AL, and he loves art, art history, weightlifting, friends, family – and really dirty Martinis.
