Mike very much enjoys reading, drinking wine and good food. Mike likes to cook – it’s one of the few creative things he is good at. Mike finds the more wine; the more creativity he is able to expose.
Mike is a part time single parent to two wonderful children, and he has an elderly cat that keeps him on his toes. Mike is a lifelong fan of Everton Football Club which some might say can be considered character building.
