Mike is a convert to the Church who “Swam the Tiber" back in 2007. Growing up in a Methodist/Jewish household, Mike would later convert to Mormonism, study Eastern Philosophy and then find his home in the Catholic Church by researching to find what Christ left for us and what His disciples believed and did. This religious pursuit would cause him to change his major in college and subsequently receive his Bachelors in Religious Studies, his Masters in Theological Studies and currently pursuing his PhD in Catholic History. Having lived all over the United States, Mike has found his home in Nashville, Tennessee where he lives with his beautiful wife and two young children.
