He has been in this business as long as anyone can recall and is known as the ultimate on-site captain for our Denver team.

You will find him walking the warehouse every day, making sure that furniture is pulled from shelves, linens are counted, trucks are loaded properly and then makes sure it all goes back in the right place for the next event.

If we didn’t have Mike making sure that we had enough power for all our lighting tricks, we don’t know what we’d do. He is a master at figuring out all our electrical connections and managing our lekos, gobos, bistro lights and chandeliers in inventory. Mike is a master on site, properly lighting every wall, ceiling, dance floor, and dining table at each and every Design Works event.
