Mike Calonne



Mike started designing pools in 2008, and joined the Southernwind Pools team in 2011. This was after 20+ years in the Apparel Industry, where he gained extensive experience and passion for graphic design.

For Mike, the design process starts with listening carefully to the homeowner, and picking up on key points that are important to that individual family. Is it Safety? Functionality? Aesthetics? Quality of construction? Ease of maintenance? Room for entertainment? Something else? Mike recognizes that every family is different, which means every pool project must be different. This requires a high level of interaction, communication, and attention to detail. Every project must be individualized to the specific needs of that family.

Mike’s greatest satisfaction occurs when he asks the homeowner how they feel about the project, and their answer is “Perfect! Awesome! Just what we wanted!”
