Meet Mikey


Pronouns: He/him/his
Fairbanks, AK
Major: Digital Journalism
Minor: Spanish

My name's Mikey and Fairbanks is my home. I grew up about 5 minutes from campus and started working in a student position with UAF Career Services shortly after graduating high school. After a year and a half, I took a break from school to think about what degree I wanted to pursue, but I'm back at school and have recently found interest in Digital Journalism. I currently live just north of campus in a cabin without running water— what Alaskans call a dry cabin. Outside of work and school, I like spending time with friends playing video games, watching movies, and making art and music.
