  • Quotes

    • (When asked if he was a Star Trek fan before going to read for Billy Telfer)
      Michael: Absolutely. I've always been amazed at Trek's ability to create a compelling, entirely different world on a weekly basis. In addition to Voyager, of course, I was a big fan of TNG as well as DS9. In fact, whenever I go up for roles in Shakespearean pieces, Armin Shimmerman is kind enough to coach me. He's an expert with Shakespeare.

    • Micheal: Animation is fantastic. Actually, I didn't find it hard at all and I don't really know why. I just sort of took to it. I do know that some of my friends feel sort of tied down when they only have a microphone, but I actually find it somewhat liberating. In animation, you can be anything. I've played everything from a worm, a football hero, an army sergeant, to a million other things and it doesn't matter what you look like. You also don't have to shave and you can work in your sweats, so that's pretty great too. It gives you permission to be as childish and as goofy as you want, and it lets your imagination soar. I have to say, Matt on Digimon is a really fun character to play.

    • Micheal: Life is far too short not to be passionate about what you are doing. If you love this profession, then always study, always approach it as a business, and always treat people with respect. It's a wonderful, frustrating, uplifting job and I am honored to be a part of it.
