Today we’d like to introduce you to Mike Ferguson.
Mike was born in Boston Massachusetts. He was heavily influenced by the East Coast Hardcore scene and the anti-racist movement growing out of it while at the same time, he created a record label wherein many of the bands are still around making impacts to this day. Mike, by the time he was 18 years old he had two full tattoo sleeves. Hardcore music and tattoos were a package deal back in the day, so it only came naturally that Mike learned how to tattoo. As he started to develop a distaste for the corruption in monetizing this influential art, he leaned more towards tattooing being that that allowed him to control his narrative. Through tattooing, he was able to travel the world, but like many young men in search of their calling, vices had their hold on him at times. Until he met his wife who in addition to being the mother of his children, is a professional bodybuilder, wrestler, actress, and black belt and instructor in Krav Maga. These two souls matching up got Mike on a path of progress, and she pushed Mike to believe he could do anything, thus he started acting. He’s able to bounce from kid’s shows on Television to the most despicable villain you could see on Screen.
Mike has played many characters throughout his real life, acting has given him more avenues for art and more characters to play.
If you’re gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough. Mike does just that.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Absolutely I have had obstacles. Having a wonderful family you have to make decisions based on the betterment of all of us. Balancing a professional life and a family life can be tough.
Being that my wife is in the entertainment industry, we both have to make sacrifices on the daily. Sleep, money, time, you name it. At the end of the day when we all sit down and have dinner (if we have time for that) it is all worth it.
What else should our readers know?
I’m an actor, been full time for the past four years. I’m known for being a bad guy. What sets me apart is the way I look.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success to me is building a life that provides a sense of fulfillment and a feeling of content. My family is comfortable, I’m comfortable, and we live a life built on our terms.
