Mike came to the Sun as a co-op student from Thornlea Secondary School at the age of 16 and has worked at the newspaper each summer while still at school. He also did part-time work during the school year and covered, for example, the National Lacrosse League, the OHL and university sports.

During his final years at Ryerson, Mike covered the Memorial Cup, the Molson Indy and Tennis Masters Canada. He also did some reporting on the Toronto Argonauts, the Buffalo Bills and PGA and LPGA golf.
