Hello, my name is michael and I am a recovering political junkie. I have just come off a month long “political binge” where I lost my ability to think about anything but the 08 election and how much I hate the republican machine. After being driven to distraction for the last month I have decided to throw away all my POLITICS and NEWS bookmarks and get back to business. Not that I haven’t been working. As a matter of fact I seem to be busier that ever. With lots of great assignments and more coming my way I certainly cannot complain. Plus the post production in this digital darkroom age is a bit overwhelming. Anyway I did get to sneak out for a few events that were pretty cool. My talented cinematographer friend Mott Hupful invited me to the US Open Mens finals, which was really fun even though Rafel Nadal wasn’t there to stop the invincible machine Roger Federer.
