Michael Whittles is the anchor, operations guy and resident undertaker of Dead Sled Coffee. Mike grew up on the Jersey Shore in Point Pleasant and has a lifelong love of good coffee and good music. Mike started playing saxophone in grade school and attempted the world of being a musician before family and corporate life grabbed a hold of him. Married to Diana, and a father of 2 teenage boys, Mike looks at Dead Sled Coffee as a way to combine all things he treasures most: family, friends, music and coffee.

When Mike has some downtime he enjoys podcasting, traveling to Disney World, going to see live music, following his favorite sports teams, watching mixed martial arts and playing chess.
