Mike Arcigal

Cold Spring, New York

I was born and raised in Yonkers, NY. I currently live 60 miles north of NYC in the Hudson Highlands. I hate the Red Sox. I love my wife and my children more than anything in the whole world. Hiking is totally my thing. Photography is my other thing. I'm an amateur at both of my things. I was once voted most likely to succeed by my peers. I'm a marketing & communications specialist with a focus on IMC. I started working in bookselling part-time my freshman year of college, and I still work in bookselling to this day. I love running, though injury has kept me from it for quite some time now. I try to meditate and practice yoga when I can. I own a number of guitars and one bass and I can play the piano. In my opinion, I am, at best, a mediocre musician though I'm often told otherwise. I don't understand the deal with roller skate sneakers. I don't know who the Kardashians are, nor am I likely to care. I'm a perfectionist to a fault. I hate to lose. I'm a sore winner. I once applied for a job at the World Wrestling Entertainment but they didn't call back. I'm a repository of knowledge when it comes to the Beatles and Star Wars. I cook pretty good braised short ribs. I have never been to California, but I would love to see Yosemite.
