Graduate in Mass Communication from St Anthony's College Shillong and a Diploma in Journalism from IIMC Delhi, Mike started his career with ANI. Later he shifted base to financial capital Mumbai where he worked with Times Now as a business reporter. It was in Mumbai that that his fascination with financial news really started.
Mike has been with CNN IBN since 2008 and churns out business reports that affect the average viewers. Inflation, Sensex crashing, Satyam fraud, subprime crisis and all.
Worst thing he has ever done as a journalist? Stalking Ratan Tata for a byte on Jaguar Rover deal at Bombay House in a tinted car and being hauled by Mumbai police for the crime.
He also keenly follows what happens back home in the North East and fancies his chance of becoming Meghalaya's CM one day. CMs are changed every 6 month in the state and he is hopeful that at this rate his chances are bright.
When not working Mike loves listening to Bob Dylan croon. He boasts of the entire collection of Bob Dylan's Album.
These days he also slogs out at the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, Delhi on the weekends with the intention of acquiring MBA degree he thinks will help in number crunching better.
Mike also wants to write one day. Big deal! Everybody wants to be a writer but no one wants to write.
