Mike began Aire Born in 1987 with former partner John Bolt. He and his wife, Tina have six children… which they had merely for tax relief.

Mike is the visionary leader of Aire Born. He is currently working on a 1/552 scale model of what he calls the “Aire Born Compound” in his office. The Aire Born megaplex would include a 12 screen movie theater which would only show “Howard the Duck” (Mike’s favorite movie) as well as White Castle and Popeye’s restaurants. The Wilson Tower, modeled after the Eiffel Tower, “but without the French food”, would be the centerpiece of the plaza. Mike has occasionally been seen siphoning oil from the pipeline outside of the studio, which explains why he can live so far away and still afford gas.

Van Lawson | Partner, Engineer, Arranger, Composer


Van has been with Aire Born for quite some time. We’re actually not sure when he began working at the studio, he just showed up one day and has been hanging around ever since.

Raised in the city, but now the owner of a farm, Van says he was duped into country life by John Denver who said “life on the farm was kinda laid back”. So now when he’s not fighting frozen farm equipment or chasing chickens off the porch, Van uses every unbooked hour available locked in Studio B’s ISO booth pursuing what he calls: “Resonant Hum Therapy”.
