Mike H. (a.k.a.: miguel, harley, waxer, feralson)

Growing up in Hawai'i in the late '60's introduced me to the haole-boy school of hard knocks and taught me the tribal power of aloha. Climbing & kayaking - rivers & crags - brought purpose to my mid-Atlantic teens. Developing an early love for the natural environment, oceans, mountains and wild places, I was fortunate to tap into these forces that have charged my batteries ever since. 

With a foundation of purpose based on devoted relationships, unfiltered experience, quality work, and giving back, I've fused together a pretty sweet career. Most every job has been a dream gig: selling carabiners in the Tetons, guiding whitewater in West "By God" Virginia, developing Patagonia's snowsports line/brand, "handling" Yvon Chouinard, serving as a PR wrangler and outdoor ambassador for Montana.

With gratitude for the past, humility for the present, and an eye to the future, I'm keen to design an ambitious next chapter.
