Mike Carroll has been an Art Director, accessory designer, graphic designer, photographer and production artist. Mike recently rejoined with Select Distribution, where he began his career. This time he has been fortunate to work directly with skate legends like Christian Hosoi, Duane Peters, Mike Vallely and Marty "Jinx" Jimenez.
He is also the owner of Mike Carroll designs which allows him to work with a diverse range of clients that are outside of the skate & action sports industry. Recently he began working with Scott Petri, a State Rep. in Pennsylvania that is making a run for Congress.
Mike’s commitment and his positive approach to everyday work has led to success in his positions as well as strong relationships with his peers. His experience has given him the opportunity to develop his management & team buliding skills.
Mike graduated from CCA with a BFA in graphic design.
