Mike

As co-Founder of the FANtastic Horror Film Festival he brings over 30 years of Entertainment experience, and 25 years of Organizational work. Together with his wife, JoAnn, Mike has done what others thought impossible with their limited resources. It is with this teamwork that Mike and JoAnn have tackled this project with all the confidence - and terror -required to make FANtastic Horror Film Festival THE premiere horror film festival.

Mike has been in theatre for a long, long time.

From a nervous teen in high school to Chairman of a local Community theater in his hometown of Philadelphia, Mike has worn as many hats as there have been opportunities for him. He has performed as an actor, a dancer, a musician, a stage manager, a choreographer, a music director, and every thankless job behind the scenes. He's also done bit parts in independent theater. His computer skills have been handy in complementing deficiencies in various productions, and has on occasion done some unaccredited stunt work.

Mike has also worked with various Pharmacy Organizations, serving as President of The Academy of Pharmacy Technicians, the Association of Pharmacy Technicians, and moderates the Annual Conference for the National Pharmacy Purchasing Association.

Mike is a movie reviewer for the social movie site Matchflick.com, focusing on the Independent Movie Community, and has interviewed many Filmmakers as part of his responsibilities.
