Michael is a veteran of the flooring and interior design business having been in business for himself for over 40 years.

Twenty-two years ago, after he relocated from Los Angeles to the beautiful Pacific Grove area, he started Mykels Interiors. Having worked together extensively, as well as being friends for over 20 years, Michael and Tony knew there was a natural synergy to their respective businesses. After discussing it, they decided that together, they could provide an unparalleled blend of offerings and services to the people in the Monterey Bay Area and decided to merge their businesses.

Michael is an active member of the Rotary Club and The Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce. He has received numerous awards over the years in recognition for his service to the Rotary and Chamber of Commerce. He continues to serve his community as a board member and Sergeant at Arms for the Rotary Club, and as a board member and Second Vice Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce.

Serving his customers with ethical business practices, and giving back to the community are the primary focus of his career.
