Meet Event and Gala Live Auctioneers

Hosting a Live Auction is one of the most popular ways to raise funds for non-profit organizations. The Live Auction always is usually the highlight of the event featuring special experiences, exciting trips and unique items that you hope will raise the most funds for your organization. How the auction is presented is almost as important as what is being offered when trying to fundraise. A professional auctioneer will make the difference in the world of raising funds.

Operations/Consignment Coordinator
214-409-1422

Mike was born in Overland Park, Kansas and after spending some time on the East Coast his family settled in Plano Texas. He attended Plano Senior High School where he played offensive line for an overrated yet scrappy Wildcat team that failed to make the playoffs each season of his tenure. Despite this disappoint Mike found solace in the fact that he had the opportunity to develop a remarkable prowess at knocking people over and pushing people around during his time in the trenches at PSHS that would certainly serve him well in the future. After being overlooked by most (every) college football program due to size discrimination by so called "scouts", Mike decided to enroll at the University of Texas at Austin. With the possibility of NFL millions no longer an option, at UT he focused on a career in the fast paced and glamorous world of US History.

In 2006 he found his calling in Dallas Texas when he began working as a Consignment Coordinator in the Sports Department at Heritage Auctions. Although not a collector himself his interest and knowledge in sports and business made it a good fit. He soon became the Operations Supervisor for the Sports Department, a position he holds to this day. In this role Mike oversees the receipt, processing and storage of over 17,000 auction lots annually valued at over $20 million. These lots range from single cards and baseballs, to bats and golf clubs, to stadium chairs and paintings. He is also responsible for ensuring all auction lots are properly authenticated by various third party authenticators from all over the country while properly documenting this certification. In addition, he handles customer service issues for the Sports Department from both consignors and winning bidders. Every year Mike supervises all the preparations, setup and operation of the Heritage booth at the National Sports Collectors Convention. This includes the display and security of the material in our annual Platinum Night Auction held over the weekend during the convention. Plus, Mike contributes the sports department related tweets for the Heritage Auctions twitter page, @HeritageAuctions.

In 2012 Mike became a certified auctioneer enabling him to bring his rugged good looks and quick witted collectibles banter to the podium. You can find him entertaining bidders and pleasing consignors in venues ranging from Sports and Coins to Movie Posters, Historical and Benefit Auctions.
