Mike is so committed to recreating the college model that he decided to make it happen himself. He co-founded Duet in 2015 after witnessing so many students struggle to complete their degrees because the higher education system was not designed for them.
"The best part of this work? Seeing students make it to the finish line — and people hollering and cheering when they do," Mike says. "In this program you can pick up steam at any time and make it happen."
When he is not hard at work with Duet staff and students, you'll find Mike at home getting in to mischief with his own two kids.
