Michael “Bear” Meyer


Michael retired after a 40 year career in the recorded music industry representing domestic and international record labels and artists.  Michael co-owns Squirrel Haus Arts with Donna Meyer. He wears many hats at SHA and enjoys interacting and scheduling those interested in using the facility. It’s a toss up if he is most happy in his SHA workshop, or, driving his old truck (George) to the lumber yard. Michael was tagged with the nickname “Bear” based on his volunteer work with children. He has volunteered for many organizations such as: McDonalds Ranch, Redwood Rescue Mission, AT&T Pebble Beach, International Justice Mission and NEMAA in Minneapolis. Summers you can find him as a boat Captain taking senior citizens for a weekly cruise on Lake Minnetonka. He was born in Los Angeles and relocated to Minneapolis in 1975. He has two adult children and two grandchildren.
