Mike Holler

Co-Editor-in-Chief, The Kindling

Mike immersed himself in The Kindling in his first year and has missed only two meetings in three years.

“Even as an entry-level staff member, you’re part of the whole process," Mike says. "You write your articles, workshop it, take accompanying photographs, lay them out on the computer and then, finally, get to distribute the print versions."

Now a co-editor-in-chief, he oversees the operation, working diligently to keep variety in the humor. “We’ve got a little bit of everything and I love that,” Mike says.

Mike also knows what he’s doing applies to his future. “Sharing ideas and working together to get a collaborative work out by a deadline parallels almost every office job,” Mike says. “It’s impressive to be able to hand a publication to an employer and say, ‘We did this.’”
