"Meet a Scientologist" Conquers the Heights of Sydney With the Kings

"Meet a Scientologist": Mike and Maureen King

Scientology Network’s "Meet a Scientologist," the weekly series spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists from around the world and all walks of life, announces a new episode featuring skyscraper maintenance innovators and entrepreneurs Mike and Maureen King.

"Meet a Scientologist" airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.

For Mike King, a day at the office may mean dangling from ropes 30 stories high to see to it that the skyscrapers in Sydney, Australia are in tiptop shape. But this high-flying entrepreneur is firmly grounded when it comes to the safety of his crew. Mike and business partner and wife, Maureen, rose to the top, building an award-winning company from the ground up.


British-born Mike King relished the extreme challenges growing up in Australia afforded him, from surfing 14-foot waves to scaling tall trees. His passion for exhilarating endeavors led him into the boxing ring, battling his way to a professional career and the state championship. After hanging up his gloves, he chanced upon abseiling (descending the face of near vertical surfaces by rope) as a way to clean skyscraper windows. Faster and less expensive than scaffolding the height of tall buildings, he and his wife, Maureen, soon built Townview Australia, a business that towers over the competition and became a leader in skyscraper maintenance. Working high above the streets of Sydney, every job is a dangerous job, but the Kings put their crew through intensive safety training and so boast a spotless safety record.

The Scientology Network debuted on March 12, 2018. Since launching, the Scientology Network has been viewed in 237 countries and territories worldwide in 17 languages.
