About Mike Hawkins

Passionate about ultimate frisbee, photography and travel, I'm an active Californian who 10 years ago fell head over heels in love with living abroad in Europe, and love bringing a healthy dose of American enthusiasm to a string of start-ups and small European companies. History and culture are great and all, but I'm still searching holding out hope for the perfect Manchester hamburger... any tips?
