About Mike: 

"At the age of 11, my father took me into TJ’s Classic Billiards in Waterville, Maine. This was the first time I had ever played the game and I loved it instantly. For the next few years, I would visit the pool hall as often as my dad would let me and spend hours at the table.  At the age of 14, my father allowed me to play in my first tournament, the 14 and under at the Super Billiards Expo (SBE). I won the tournament and from there, it was over. I decided that from that point on, I would strive to become one of the best pool players in the country. As I got a bit older, I would travel to every tournament in New England with some friends from Maine. I attended most of the Joss Northeast Tour Stops as well as many others. I quickly noticed that I was constantly getting better at a fast pace, which fueled my desire to pursue tournaments much bigger and further from home.

At the age of 19, I decided that after competing and winning both the 14 and under as well as the 18 and under at the SBE, it was time to dip my toes in the Amateur Open. With a field of 800+ participants, I found my way to the top, winning the $5k first prize and sealing the deal that I couldn’t participate in any other amateur events throughout the country. At this point, I consider myself to have gained “pro status.”

Since then, I have been competing on the pro tour. This has allowed me to travel not only all over the United States but overseas as well, including China, the Philippines, and England.  I have even been very fortunate throughout my career. Not only do I have a few titles to my name, but I have also had the honor to have been chosen to represent the USA in three different tournaments. I have settled down in Providence, RI, where I play out of Snookers Sports Bar and Grill, which, in my opinion, is the best pool hall in the country. I consider myself very lucky to be able to do something I love. Pool is something I was born to do and I am looking forward to the years to come."

Quote from Mike about OB:

“Switching to OB has been one of the best decisions in my Professional career.  OB focuses on two of the main ingredients when perfecting their low deflection shafts, consistency and quality.  I am looking forward to this successful relationship.”
