As the founder and CEO of PricePlow, Mike wears an extraordinary number of professional hats, but none is more important than father. PricePlow began as a deals website for nutritional supplements and vitamins, but has evolved into so much more as Mike's journey towards optimized healthspan opened the doors to several discoveries.

A "Biohacktivist" Armed with Data

Stealing a term coined by Shawn Wells, RDH, Mike is a "biohacktivist", stemming from the words "biohacker" and "activist". Through thousands of dollars spent on blood tests, specialized foods, and supplements, Mike has learned that conventional 'establishment' nutritional guidelines have failed him and his family. He has made it his mission to help bring awareness to those who seek a similar awakening.

Through PricePlow, Mike is backed up by a team of doctors, researchers, professional athletes, dieticians, and medical school students in an effort to bring source-cited truth to his followers. With their help, he utilizes certain dietary tools such as a low-carb diet with an emphasis on healthy meat to maintain optimal cognitive and physical health.

Mike combines his background in competitive sports, computer programming, and is known for his role as a biomedical scientist on television.[1] This experience combined, he has created one of the most helpful nutrition tools on the web -- with, of course, the help of his incredibly talented research and programming team.

Competitive Swimmer

In the sporting world, Mike comes from a swimming background where he began competing at the age of five. He played water polo at the Ohio State University and is now a competitive sand volleyball player and Master's swimmer, specializing in endurance ocean swims as well as freestyle butterfly sprints. Mike participates in US Masters Swim races in Central Texas. He is 6'0 and weighs in at 185lbs as of December 2018..

But it's not all water -- when he's not spending ridiculous hours developing PricePlow and poking holes at the latest diet research, he can be found training at home.

Family and home life: "Know Your Child"

At home, Mike is married to his wonderful wife Jill, and together they raise their delightfully precious daughter, who was born in the fall of 2017. Mike and Jill have taken an extremely active "know your child" stance, educating her as much as possible as early as possible.

Mike lives outside of Austin, TX near the Hill Country, and is always happy to jump in on a triathlon relay as your swimming leg.

You can see Mike regularly on the PricePlow YouTube Channel.

Mike spends nearly all of his social media time on the @PricePlow accounts, but there are some personal accounts too:
