“Mike is reliable, dedicated, organized, diligent and a great teacher. He has shown exceptional leadership ability and yet is a great team player. Socially he is a pleasure to be around, eternally upbeat with an active imagination and a wonderful sense of humour. I would consider him a tremendous asset to any creative project and wish him well in the future as he explores and develops his talents further, particularly his already evident writing skills. Mike has my highest recommendation and I am happy to receive your call to speak in his favour.”
