Even at an early age, Mike displayed a strong interest and talent in both food and special events. There wasn’t a food or lifestyle magazine Mike could resist; always looking for new ideas that would eventually inspire him to join the profession. Aside from his peeked interest, Mike decided to listen to his practical side and decided to to persue his education first and foremost. Considering a Seminary School, Mike took an abrupt turn and ended up completing an MBA in International Human Resouce Management.
After a brief career in retail grocery and advertising, Mike realized his passion was not in corporate America and instead decided to follow his true calling in the catering and event production working with several top caterers and event planers in the LA market. By virtue of his strong organizational skills and natural talent, Mike was invited to join Regal Rents in 1997 where he learned the business as a very busy Production Assistant and then eventually moving up to the position as full fledged Event Director working on major event productions and high end parties and noteable galas and fund raising events.
In his rare “off-time”, Mike loves to bake and is very known for his incredible desserts. Make sure if you ever invite Mike over for dinner, ask him to bring dessert. You surely won’t be disapointed when he shows up with a large variety of tempting treats in tow!
