Portrait of a GFFer: Mike Lehr

Meet Mike Lehr. Mike is a city boy from Baltimore, Maryland and a huge Orioles and Ravens fan. He received his Bachelor of Architecture from Drexel University in Philadelphia and has been married to his wife, Lisa, for 18 years. They have a 16 year old daughter, Madison, and an 8 year old son, Dylan. Mike joined the GFF Church Works Studio in 2016 after moving from Pennsylvania with his family. Read below for more about Mike!

  1. I love photography.  I grab random shots of inspiration on Instagram and carry my camera with me when I travel.
  2. Being a father is my favorite job.
  3. I knew I wanted to be an architect in first grade.
  4. We love to be outside, hiking, and traveling to see new places.  My favorite trips have been San Antonio, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Bermuda.  We try to make a trip to NYC every few year around the holidays.
  5. I could eat tacos for every meal; another reason I’m happy to be in Texas!
  6. I love sports and help coach my son’s baseball and basketball teams.  I enjoy running and playing softball with fellow GFFers.
  7. We just celebrated my daughter’s 16th birthday by going indoor skydiving as a family.
  8. I’m a certified lay speaker in the United Methodist Church.
  9. I love music and going to concerts with friends.  My favorite artists to listen to right now are the Turnpike Troubadours, the Avett Brothers and David Ramirez.
  10. Despite being annoyed that my wife booked a trip to Disney World during Super Bowl XLVII that the Ravens won, I got to see Joe Flacco in the MVP parade the next day and was interviewed by a local Baltimore TV station.
