Mike Carlie began taking classical piano lessons at 3 1/2 years of age. After a decade of lessons and concerts he took a hiatus from piano to learn how to play a guitar and continues plays and composes on both piano and guitar to this day. From 14 to 22 years of age, Mike was booked out of New York as a youth-group songleader and filled that role as National Songleader for the National Federation of Temple Youth. He traveled throughout United States leading high-school youths in song. Retiring from that position to pursue his doctorate in sociology at Washington University, Mike retired recently as a university professor and criminologist having conducted international field research on police, prisons, youth gangs and delinquency. His book on street gangs has been adopted by law enforcement and correctional agencies and community-based non-profits throughout the United States.
