As a kid Mike spent endless hours riding his big wheel, honing his kickball skills and perfecting the perfect mud pie for his sisters’ enjoyment. At age 11 he roller skated nine hours straight becoming the first kid to circumnavigate his block 930 times. In the summer of 1978 he was known as the Disco Kid. At age 12 he began a project to tunnel to China but stopped short because the Brady Bunch came on TV followed by The Partridge Family. In the 80’s he bent to peer pressure and wore a mullet and parachute pants. And in 1994 he realized kids were missing out on a lot of cool stuff, so he created Kidventure.
UPDATE (2016) I am now the father of four kids. We adopted a 2 yr. old back in February. I had previously erased diaper changes from my mind. Oh boy.
UPDATE (2017) Four kids is a lot. Feeling weak and tired constantly. I think the kids are plotting to take over at any moment. Wish me luck…
