Mikey is in his third season with the TCC. He built the website for Hearts Across Romania, an organization dedicated to helping impoverished Romanian orphans. He has also participated in fundraising efforts for AIDS Arms, North Texas Food Bank and the Susan G. Komen Foundation as a member of TCC and Resounding Harmony.

On June 26, 2015, when the US Supreme Court announced marriage equality, Mikey and his now husband were the third couple in line at City Hall. Hours later, they were married and able to share their love through local press interviews and photos seen all around the world.

“This was the proudest moment of my life.”
