Mike started animating when he was 13 years old. As a professional animator, he has worked for such companies as Walt Disney Feature Animation, Warner Bros., Pixar and Valve. He got his start with stop motion animation working with icons like Gumby, Pillsbury Doughboy, Hersey Kisses and films like The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach.

Years later he transitioned to computer animation creating feature films, commercials, video games and even virtual reality experiences! One of his many hobbies is traveling the world teaching and lecturing about the craft of animation. The only thing he loves more than animating, is spending time with his family.
