Mike doing what he loves best - celebrating after a successful paddle race

Mike is the founder of PricePlow, a price comparison shopping website for nutritional supplements and vitamins.

In the sporting world, Mike is a competitive sand volleyball player and swimmer, specializing in endurance ocean swims as well as freestyle butterfly sprints. He is 6'0 and 195lbs as of February 2014.

But it's not all water -- when he's not spending ridiculous hours developing PricePlow, you can find him working out regularly with our sponsored bodybuilder, CJ Woodruff.

Mike lives in Austin, TX and is always happy to jump in on a triathlon relay as your swimming leg. He will bring you a great starting time, fun laughs, and a ton of supplements to get you through your race!
