Mike likes to swim long distances. He loves hanging out with his wife, three kids and insane shih poo, Tyson. He takes great pleasure in coaching and playing hockey, and has lots of fun going up north and doing “guy stuff.” He enjoys reading good books and watching classic movies. But what Mike really loves is creating cartoons, short animations or book illustrations --- it's what keeps his creative juices flowing.
