Mickey is a writer by both trade and heart. He first started writing his own newspaper when he was 5 years old, and eventually went on to receive his B.A. in English from Fort Lewis College and his Master of Liberal Arts and Sciences from UNC Asheville. While most writers dread the uncertainty of a blank page, Mickey revels in its opportunity. Whether he’s pulling together a best-of list or creating a procedure page, he loves to deliver polished, fact-based writing for CAKE’s clients. When he’s not writing, you can find him reading, hiking a new Western North Carolina trail every weekend, or watching horror films (Halloween is his favorite).
