Michael F. | Maintenance
Years of Industry Service: 18, off and on
Michael grew up on and farm and even though he lives in the city now, "I'm a country boy at heart," he says. He still does "ranching stuff" and this summer, he built a tin barn. Michael met the owners of Californo's years ago. He was just a kid when he helped them save their horse, who had gotten its bridle caught up in tractor. Michael knew the names of area vets and helped contact them. For 18 years, he has worked at Californo's off and on, working in whatever position they need him in: bartending, serving, kitchen and valet. Now he's the maintenance supervisor. Michael is also a cross-country motorcycle rider. He likes to join up for New Belgium's bike and beer festival, Tour de Fat. This year's tour includes 13 cities from Nashville to Los Angeles.
