Michael Mahonen was born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Canada.; which is a former mining town in north-eastern Ontario . Michael studied at and graduated from George Brown College in 1989. Michael is currently working in Los Angeles, California. and Toronto, Ontario.
Michael reminds me of another entertainer; an icon in American entertainment... dancer, actor, choreographer and director; none other than Gene Kelly . Both men light up the screen with their twinkling eyes , exuberance, ability to make a character seem both real and familiar, and that smile... that smile that sets them apart from other leading men... and gives them a face that you find so appealing and so hard to forget.

.Kirkland Lake Song
Words & Music by Jack Rid.
There's a town way up north of Cobalt.
That is world famous for it's gold,
The spirit there is just the same, I'll tell you,
As when men discovered it in days of old.
Chorus: Well! What do you know,
We're from Kirkland Lake,
We're the boys and we're the girls,
Who always give and take;
It's a real town, a gold town,
We're in it with a stake.
We come from near,
We come from far,
To good old Kirkland Lake.
Now we think a lot of Cobalt
And Porcupine is great,
But here's to the Pride
of the whole wide North,
Here's to Kirkland lake!
