Director of Investigations
Mike became vegan in 2006 after the loss of his dog Curly, and then spent almost 4 years working as an Undercover Investigator with a focus on animal agriculture. His investigations include hog farm suppliers to Smithfield and Hormel, which combined, have resulted in dozens of criminal cruelty charges.
His cases have been featured in several national media outlets as well as multiple books written on the topic. Mike joined COK in 2014 as the Investigations Manager, and he now oversees investigative efforts into meat, dairy, and egg facilities.
Mike also has a strong passion for vegan fitness and hopes to help show how easy it is to gain vegan muscle as a member of PlantBuilt’s Powerlifting team. He shares his home with his wife Lindsay, dog Maddy, and three cats Molly, Boy, and Grey Matter.
