Mike loves the outdoors and when he has time will be fishing on the Gulf Coast and Galveston Bay, or making a trip to his hometown of Marfa for a quail hunt with friends. Growing up in Marfa instilled a love for wide open spaces and a special affinity for ranchers and bankers, like his father. His blood flows red, as in "Red Raider" the Texas Tech mascot.
