He has appeared as a soloist with the Victoria Symphony, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra, JZ Big Band (Shanghai), Prime Time Big Band, the Calgary Stampede Orchestra and many other orchestras and big bands across Canada and abroad.

He has played on film soundtracks, jingles, and TV themes and is proud to be heard as lead trumpet during the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics (2010 EMMY AWARD - Best Music Direction, Dave Pierce) and 1994 Commonwealth Games.

Mike has recorded on numerous CD and radio sessions with artists including the Canadian Brass, Paul Brandt, Hugh Fraser, Joe Coughlin, Rob McConnell, Guido Basso, and has recorded for CBC, Universal, EMI, Sony, and Disney.
