Of interest

As life is not just about work, Mike keeps himself busy outside of Millpond too. 
Mike lives with his wife and three daughters on a lifestyle block 45 minutes out of the city. Most of his spare time is spent on the end of a hammer – building anything from houses to gardens. If you need any DIY advice, just let him know!
