“I’m a Colorado native who’s lucky that the projects I’ve worked on have had a tangible impact on the City of Denver and Colorado as a whole.”
Mike conducts underwriting analysis and ongoing support for a number of interesting redevelopment projects within the City and County of Denver. Prior to joining DURA, Mike worked for George K. Baum & Company (GKB), a regional investment bank. As the lead quantitative analyst for the real estate developer finance practice, Mike structured over 150 bond issues, with principal exceeding $1.5 Billion.

Carr Center of Justice and the History Colorado Center. Mike has also worked at the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA) where he set interest rates for various lending programs, structured private placements and was part of the financing team for all new money and refunding bond issues. Mike received a Bachelor of Science degree (finance emphasis) from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Colorado at Denver, and was appointed to the State of Colorado Private Activity Bond Allocations Committee in 2015. Outside of work, Mike enjoys traveling with his wife Joyce, brewing beer and continuing to build upon his vast knowledge of trivia.
