About

bioPhoto
A native of northwest New Jersey—the rural, pretty part—Mike studied illustration and visual communications at Washington University in St. Louis. Since then he’s worn a lot of hats, working as an illustrator, designer, animator, creative director, and educator. All he wants to do is make things, and help other people make their things better. His abilities range from traditional illustration techniques to scripting in Python and JavaScript and building WordPress sites. He mixes strong drinks and loves to cook. He currently lives abroad in Konstanz, Germany with his wife Blair, a behavioral ecologist.
