Mike currently works as an animation director at Corus Entertainment in Toronto, and has directed a number of award-winning children's shows. A show he worked on called Mike the Knight has won an international Emmy.

Mike likes to swim long distances. He loves hanging out with his wife, three kids and insane shih poo, Tyson.

But what Mike really loves is creating cartoons, short animations or book illustrations --- it's what keeps his creative juices flowing.
