“ I have had the pleasure of working with Mike for several years now. He was a large part of my decision to become art director for Fallen Earth, because of his uncanny ability to interpret ideas and provide masterful concepts. To say that he was an integral part of the look of Fallen Earth would be a major understatement. His skills as a painter and designer are as good as they come, and his enthusiasm and desire to be great made us all work that much harder. Mike is an incredibly hard worker, a leader, and one of the best artists I've had the pleasure to work with. He'll not only be a credit to any team, but he's the kind of artist and person that you can build a team around.”

Chris Deavellar, Art Director, Icarus Studios


“Mike was a organized and charismatic leader during Siggraph. He made sure everyone knew exactly what they were doing, and was always on top of issues that would arise. He quickly made his presence known by presenting himself in a professional manner, and with a friendly demeanor, he made the work atmosphere very enjoyable and efficient. I would gladly work for Mike if I had the opportunity! I highly recommend Mike.”

Cameron Turchetti, Student Volunteer, Siggraph
