Mike is a graduate of Virginia Tech with a degree in Business Management. He lives at home with his Love Jillian, their two children and their Doberman/Shepherd mix Kylee. When he’s not covering the Steelers; Mike enjoys traveling with Jillian, playing with their kids, cooking, watching comedy, swimming and doing anything he can with the sport of baseball. His favorite time of year is Fall, which he claims is because of the weather but anyone that knows him knows it’s Steelers season.
Mike’s passion for the Steelers began as a child and as the passion grew, so did his desire to get involved with the team in any way he could. Eventually that led to the formation of his website www.steelnationassociation.com. Steel Nation Association allows Mike to cover the Steelers while connecting Steelers fans together in an effort to raise money for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
If you’re interested in helping the cause, please visit the site to learn more. He also hosts the Steel Nation Radio podcast via his site and contributes to the New Pittsburgh Courier via his column Steel Sensations. Mike was the Pittsburgh Steelers reporter for Steel Nation Magazine and his work has been picked up on other outlets as well. He’s been a guest on Sirius XM radio and the TV show Pittsburgh Sportsline. He’s extremely excited to be working with Steel City Underground and bringing great stories and strong opinions to a broader Steelers Nation audience.
