A longtime interest in woodworking led Mike Moros to open his own successful cabinet shop not far from where he grew up in Pine Brook, New Jersey. Over time, he found himself attracted to wooden boats and this eventually brought Mike to WoodenBoat School as a student in 2001. After a few courses in successive years and joining in on Alumni Work Weeks, Mike signed on as the school’s Assistant Shop Manager in 2006. In ’08 Mike took over the reins as Shop Manager. During the off-season Mike has worked on the carpentry crew at Brooklin Boat Yard. In 2009 Mike opened his own business, Michael Moros Woodworking, providing wooden boat work, custom woodworking and general contracting. When not working, Mike enjoys being outdoors, especially boating and fishing. He recently completed a handsome Glen-L Marine 16′ center console skiff for himself and is now restoring a 1953 Chris Craft.
