A chance glace at a TOTO DVD at the age of 13 resulted in Mike being totally in awe of Steve Lukather and he set about doing everything he could to become a great session guitarist like Steve. He bought every record he could find featuring great guitar players and read every magazine article he could featuring them. This was not a craving to become a rock star but an ambition to be a great guitar player and respected musician.

Although focusing on rock music, Mike studied clasical guitar and immersed himself in in as many styles as he possibly could, emerging as as the sought after guitar player he always wanted to be, as well as an accomplished songwriter in his own right.
