Mike is a native of Western Pennsylvania, but his career took him to Virginia.
Mike retired from Fairfax County Police in 2016. While serving in VA he was a driving instructor at the Police Academy. He also worked with teen drivers who attended the Youthful Driver Improvement program. Students learned vehicle dynamics, emergency maneuvers, and vehicle limits as well as their own limitations. Mike earned his private driving instructor’s certificate at Northern Virginia Community College. He has worked at private driving schools in VA and PA. Mike tried being retired but couldn’t resist getting back in the saddle when the opportunity came along with CCSOD. Mike will make every effort to help drivers become safe and competent behind the wheel. He enjoys classic cars with his wife Mary Pat, his son Andrew and two very spoiled Bichons Frises named Liberty and Belle. While Mike takes driver safety very seriously, he has a silly sense of humor. Be prepared for “Dad” jokes.
