Mike Pena was born in New York, NY in 1969. Parents emigrated from Puerto Rico to New York and later to New England.
In high school Mike was obsessed with getting accepted to Syracuse but was not accepted…Booo. So, he had the opportunity to back his way and was invited to walk on and tryout for their football team…Yesss. But he did not make it either....Booo. To make things worst, Syracuse was the only university he applied too.
With days before graduation he spontaneously joined the Marine Corps for 6 years were he completed tours in Iraq and Kuwait. In 1998 he finally received a BBA from Manhattan College which happens not to be in Manhattan!!
