degrees in Civil Engineering and Structural Engineering. He worked for the FAA, stationed in
Alaska, before eventually settling in Alamogordo to develop Round Place Inc and then Mike
Pittman Inc. He was a longtime contractor and engineer in the region and was well known for
his creativity and ingenuity. Most knew of Mike's place located on N. Florida. To some, it
resembled a junk yard, to Mike it was a Theme Park In The Making. His dream was to build
something for his family and Alamogordo. Sometimes when you shoot for the moon, you land
amongst the stars.
