"Mike Velte is one of the leaders we've worked with for years now, for whom we have great respect," says Creative Cow's Ron Lindeboom. "Mike is a gracious man whose friendly demeanor, along with his desire to find an answer for those struggling, makes him an important part of Creative Cow."

Mike is a man with a self-effacing sense of humor, who says of himself: "At age 53, after the requisite 2.1 marriages, 2.1 children, 2.1 metric tons of pet feces and 30 years of listening to customers complain about their cars, I decided it was time to try another tack. I started by learning about and building PCs. But a PC is just a tool and without a job for it to do, it is also an expensive and pretty much useless tool. Enter video. I borrowed a friend’s 8mm camcorder and with an ATI All-In-Wonder video card, I captured video -- or possibly it captured me. Yeah, it captured me..."

"After a year of struggling with this obsession -- and probably male menopause, as well -- I quit my 'day job' for a dream (the dream of never needing to go back to it!). That was about three years and another life ago. I have managed to live my dream of not working at a grind. Success with video comes for me in very small but positive steps."

Mike also teaches various video and other software tools for local trade and other schools in the Oklahoma City area.
