Mike was born in Nyeri, Kenya in 1950 and spent his early years on his family ranch on the slopes of Mount Kenya. His love of hunting was encouraged by his father and uncle, both of whom were famous Professional Hunters. Mike was first licensed as a PH in 1970 and has been hunting ever since. He has enjoyed successful professional hunting in Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Sudan, Tanzania and, more recently, the Congo. Mike is rightfully regarded as one of Africans foremost PHs. Mike spends most of his year hunting but, when he has a break, can be found at home in Botswana or staying with his many loyal clients or visiting the family in Australia. Mike is married to Debbie and they have a daughter, Jemma.
