While working at the family business he started his own business in the sign making industry doing boat and vehicle lettering, yard signs, magnetic signs, banners, store fronts, etc...mike has owned and operated his sign business for 11 years along side of his full time job. In 2011 Mike decided to make a career change and start working for a local marine canvas shop learning the skills and techniques for fabricating all marine canvas.
