In early 1974 after finance emergency handled, Hubbard created post of LRH Properties Chief for Mike with purpose of marketing Hubbard’s tech developments.
At the end of 1974 Mike and his wife went to Denver to start a family, getting approval of Mary Sue Hubbard, in 1975, to be posted as SO members there where Mike started the CofS of Colorado, growing it into one of the largest orgs in the world.

In spring of 1980, Mike was contacted by Diana Hubbard to help her. Mike partnered with old time Scientologist, John Galusha, to start Book One movement.
Over the next 2 years, Mike and John expanded the Book One movement to an international level until Mike was declared after the RTC came into power.
In early 1983 Mike was “undeclared” by the RTC to get him to help them once again with Scientology in Denver. Their terms being unacceptable to Mike, he left the CofS.
In 1983 he started an independent center in Denver. In addition to John Galusha, other former CofS members came aboard as staff. Among these included Rebecca Jessup Goldstein, one of the original Class 8s, Qual Sec and bilingual auditor in Europe and Qual Sec at Flag, and Russ Meadows, one of the original Class 12 auditors trained by Hubbard.
After two years of intense research and development, in 1987 Mike and John founded IDENICS, the only service delivered by John and Mike from that point on.
After John Galusha’s passing in 1996, Mike has continued to run IDENICS and currently works with clients from around the world. He delivers IDENICS training and processing. With advancements in the subject of IDENICS, in 2001, Mike found that he could get the same spectacular results over the phone as had been achieved for more that an decade and a half in person. This has opened up the door to international clients not able to come to Colorado for IDENICS processing.
