COW Leaders : Michael MunkittrickCreative COW Web Writer, Contributing Editor
Michael Munkittrick comes from a news production background. Starting out at an ABC affiliate, he quickly filled in the missing pieces of a drifting news production staff, finally taking his place as technical director for a 5-6 and 11 O'clock show. When the assistant production manager position became available, he took it. His boss, retired due to health issues within the year and he was promoted to greatness, OK, upper management, but close.
After the two-year stint as a PM, he moved to a WB O&O station with a "bigger" goal for the production side of its business. He quickly turned the station into a top 10 O&O and was given the reigns of the entire production facility with a new title, creative services director. Fancy huh?
Two years of work and numerous national projects later including the original WB Kids 3D work, Michael longed for the freedom he had in college. No bills, no kids, no....steady paycheck. With a few thousand dollars an enough contacts to write a "Who's who" directory for all of Central Florida, he took to the realm of freelance. A lot of local and regional projects came and went and the time came to incorporate -- for tax reasons, of course. With a few financial partners and a whole lot of years in the making, Spiral Design Studios, Inc. was born. With his wife, Karrie, a graduate of the Ringling Art School in Sarasota Florida, at his side, Spiral began taking on the local/regional market with some support from local advertising companies and a lot of help from people in the industry. Focusing on the DV format and advancing its use in the professional environment continues to be one of his main goals. While often writing or print publications and/or on location for one of Spirals numerous clients, Michael is here at the COW no less than 5 times a week and has lot to say, err, I meant offer.... yeah, that's it....offer.
In late 1998, Michael gained his MCSE certification and frequently works as a Sony "tech" by testing new products and helping address previously released versions before they reach the American public as new products.
