Mike's first encounter with woodworking was in a high school wood shop class. After high school he went to work installing teak interiors for Kettenberg Marine located in the Channel Islands Harbor. After Kettenberg closed, Mike worked for Burlington Yachts doing all of their shipwright planking and custom interiors. He built many of theirs boats from the ground up becoming a master carpenter and designer. Custom Airstreams & Vintage Trailers custom designs is an accumulation of his decades of experience. Custom Airstreams & Vintage Trailers renovations marries his love of carpentry with his desire to create custom made works of art.
Mike has always been intrigued with the old vintage aluminum trailers like Airstreams and has had several of them in his personal collection. He has traveled the world as a cinematographer filming the top surfers and water sports contributing to many theatrical films, videos, TV commercials and documentaries. After many years of building boats, street cars for San Francisco and other wood related projects that demanded design and pattern making like no other, he decided to start a new company combining his love of artistic design and his unparalled skill as a craftsman called "Silverglide Custom Trailers" in the Ventura area. Recently completed projects include a custom Airstream 25' Land Yacht Caravanner and 1972 Overlander. If you can dream it, he can build it - Mike would love to build you your next custom vintage dream trailer.
