I grew up in Southeastern Wisconsin and have been an entrepreneur most of my life. I started my first business in 1994 and have never looked back. From 1997-2017, I was a founder and partner in a very successful landscaping and lawn care company.
In 1998, one of our lawn care clients asked about landscape lighting. I have always liked and played with lighting at my own house, so I was the obvious choice to handle the customer’s request. From then on, I took over designing and maintaining many clients’ lighting needs throughout the years.
In 2013, I separated the lighting division from the lawn care company and I started Mike’s Landscape Lighting, LLC. In 2017, my partner and I sold our lawn care company to a national competitor, and I’ve been enjoying the opportunity to focus on landscape lighting ever since!
I have been trained and worked with some of the best designers in the lighting industry and am a longtime member of the Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals. I am currently enrolled in a 3 year course to become a Certified Outdoor Lighting Designer (COLD).
