Mike Gosselin was born and raised in Merrimack, New Hampshire, relocating to Florida in his 30s. His pet peeves are laziness and B.S. His first job was working for redrawing schematics by hand, using templates for symbols and lettering. As Mike says, “That should give you an idea of the era I grew up in!” His favorite food is New England fried seafood & a good T-bone steak. Mike is an avid woodworker and outdoorsman, having bought 6 acres of land and started a hobby farm in his spare time. Mike and his wife, Angela, have two children, one grandchild, and chickens, goats, rabbits, a horse and a Great Pyrenees named Beau.
