Mad Mike® Bio

Who's the "Man with the Plan"? That would be Mad Mike!

The infamous car customization specialist Mad Mike, a.k.a. the "Man with the Plan", is widely known from the hit television show “Pimp My Ride”.

Mad Mike has been a wiz in the automotive electronics industry for over 25 years. He is recognized worldwide as the best of the best when it comes to customizing and tricking out automobiles. There's no job too small, too big or crazy for him to complete.

Starting off at an early age playing with a highway patrol siren, Mad Mike began his fascination with electricity and wires. He loves the daily challenge of using his creativity to strengthen his ingenuity with electricity.

Before Mike was known as a genius within the car electronics industry, he was a dedicated American Soldier as a Radar Operator and Technician during Operation Desert Storm. His education and hands-on experiences with electronics in the Air Force catapulted his exposure in the auto industry.

Most notably, Mike can be seen weekly on MTV’s Pimp My Ride. Viewed in the U.S. and 20 other countries, Pimp My Ride is somewhat of the “ugly duckling turns to a beautiful swan adventure”. In addition to Pimp My Ride, Mad Mike has made appearances on several television and radio shows ranging from the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, TRL, G4Techtv, Jimmy Kimmel, Funk Master Flex Radio Show, X-Games amongst specialty car shows such as
DUB show, LA Auto Show, NASCAR and DB Drag World Finals.
When Mad Mike is not maneuvering wires and electrical parts, he is managing his many automotive enterprises, and proudly volunteering his time to several community organizations such as: Disabled American Vets, Keep America Clean, Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

He currently resides in Southern California and is always creating new ways to “Pimp” out your ride.
