Miguel Happoldt is an American musician who worked most notably with the US rock/reggae groups Sublime and Long Beach Dub Allstars, as well as co-founding the Skunk Records record label. He also played in the supergroup Volcano with ex-Sublime drummer Bud Gaugh after LBDA's split in 2002, under the pseudonym 'Mike Stand'.

Miguel joined Sublime after meeting Bradley Nowell through his associations with The Ziggens, after offering to use his free recording time (gained through his college course in sound engineering) to record the band. Originally joining as guitarist, the band made the decision to switch him to the position of producer and manager a short while later.

During his stint with the Long Beach Dub Allstars, Miguel played guitar, as well as producing both the band's studio albums.

Other notable artists that Miguel has produced tracks for include Unwritten Law, Slightly Stoopid, and Shortbus.

Following Bradley Nowell's 1996 death, his dalmatian, Lou Dog, was cared for by Michael. Lou Dog died on September 17, 2001.
