PROFILE

Mike interned with Millcreek in the summer of 2013 and shortly after completed his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from The Ohio State University where he majored in Sustainable Plant Systems, with specialization in Horticulture.  He joined our team full-time in the spring of 2014 as a Coordinator working primarily with our PRO #1 Perennials.  In spring 2015, he was promoted to Section Grower in PRO #1 Perennials and Stepables®.

Most recently, in the fall of 2016, Mike transitioned to Section Grower in Propagation. His job responsibilities include propagating perennial and herb starter material and managing the cultural and growing requirements of all plants in our propagation area. Additionally, he works alongside the perennial and herb section growers to develop crop recipes, schedules, and production plans and secures plant material and supplies for our propagation area. We are excited to have Mike’s energy and enthusiasm in our Propagation area.

A native of Wisconsin, Mike developed his passion for plants through countless outdoor excursions and family camping trips.  In his spare time Mike enjoys hobbies such as hiking, biking, cooking, visiting botanical gardens and photography.
