Mike maintains an office on the second floor of Hackman and is here working before many of us come in at 8:30 a.m.  We are extremely proud of Mike both for his teaching reputation and his published works which include 5 textbooks.  We are delighted that we still see him on a daily basis and hope it remains that way for years to come.  When he isn't writing, Mike and his wife Janet love to travel, expecially to the southwest.
