Meet the Staff
Mike grew up in Connecticut and graduated Bunnell High School in 2000. Mike majored in Criminal Justice at Housatonic Community College. While working as a special police officer with a vast interest in law enforcement and exotic animals, he volunteered at a local zoo and became an elephant groomer at Cole Bros. Circus. He then became a seasonal keeper at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. When that season ended, he did two tours with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus as an animal handler. It was during the second tour that Mike visited Lion Habitat Ranch as a guest that he asked if help was needed and was hired as a handler in July.
