Biography

Mike was born in May of 1967 in Montreal, Quebec. He was exposed to comics at age 5 and has never looked back.

He joined Comicopia as a founding member in September 1990, became part of the DM team a year later and soon took over the collating, binding, treasury, and editorial until assuming the mantle of DM. Along the way, he brought a web presence (along with International members), an ISSN number, Convention appearances and panels, and a healthy evolution. His zine, Floodgates of the Mind, has graced every issue of Comicopia since #1.

In 1997 he was asked to join Scarlet Rose Productions as Line Editor and also sold a number of stories (not yet released). SRP released 10 books before going on hiatus. Nearly-completed material still rests in its archives and will be released when possible.

In 2005 he was asked to be on the Nominating Panel of Judges for the inaugural year of The Joe Shuster Canadian Comic Book Awards. In 2006 he was the only Nominating Member to be asked back and officially made the Nominating Committee Coordinator.

His first novel, The Anti-Bodies: Heaven Can Wait, has been released by Lulu.com.

His freelance writing work (fiction and interviews) can be seen scattered throughout the web.
