Hello my name is...

Mike.
I was the long haired guy who often slept under his desk when he missed the last train back to Chicago,the dancing idiot at every wedding, and the overseas studio guinea pig. Occasionally I animated.

If you asked me 10 years ago if I would be waxing nostalgic for Homewood IL, I would have laughed and gone outside for a cigarette. But I have to admit, my time at Startoons were some of the best years of my life. I have yet to work with a group of people I enjoyed more.

I'm looking forward to what this blog can do. My first suggestion is to start posting the birthday cards and remebering how much productivity was lost during their creation. I will post what I have when it's not 4am and when I'm not catching a plane to Chicago in the morning. Hopefully I will see some of you while I am in town for the Chewbone animation screening.

That's exactly how I remember Mike in my dreams... Doing jumping jacks with a cat and mouse massaging his knees. You should have worn that hat to the Chewbone screening ;) Nice to see you again. Also, I need Wendie's e-mail so I can send a personal invite!
