Mike Warner Sr.
Mike Sr. is an avid sports lover - he is a long-time suffering Cleveland sports fan. He claims he loves golfing but golfing doesn't love him - still he can be found chasing around that little white ball on the golf course from time to time. Mike loves to travel to new and exciting places and enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, cross-country skiing, and playing with his three young grandsons and granddaughter. He says that reading would really be a passion of his if he only had more time!
He is an accountant by schooling, a technology nerd by choice - but unlike your stereotypical tech-geek he has a great time getting out and meeting new people. He is a CPA with eleven years of public accounting experience. Mike believes in using technology to help people, which is how his business all began.
