A former staff member in the Florida House of Representatives for six years and a media personality beginning at age 16, Mike Scudiero spent most of his spare time in a full calendar year penning a zany novel combining his two favorite passions: baseball and politics. Off-beat, comedic and perhaps just outrageous enough to be true, Payoff Pitch is a must-read for any true political junkie or baseball fan.
A political and media strategist, Mike also negotiates labor contracts as a staff member with the Coastal Florida PBA, where he has worked since 2008.
While still attending Seabreeze High School in 1995, Mike began working at both the Daytona Beach News-Journal and WNDB-AM 1150. Following six years in radio where he performed multiple tasks, including producing the popular "Marc Bernier Show", hosting the "Sports Scene" and directing the station's award-winning news department, he became a Senior Legislative Aide to State Representative Pat Patterson.
Mike is a native of Long Island and has lived in central Florida since 1984. He and his wife Heather have two sons: Joseph (6) and George (3). They reside in Ormond Beach.
