Who Am I?
My name is Mike V. Derderian
What does the V stand for? Vendetta. Just joking my father’s name is just unique. Once you get to know me I’ll reveal it.
I am Homo sapien, a writer, a comic artist and a fierce windmill slayer trying to get a hold of a banana in a world governed by apes …
I studied English Literature at Damascus University in Syria, where I fell in love with the English Language, and found my other half, Nesrin, who gave me an amazing little girl called Amie.
“I have an imagination because of my mother, Maral, who bothered to buy me books, and my father, Vartkes, who paid for them!”
When I am not writing, I am drawing, and when I am not drawing, I am writing; this is my vicious circle.
I worked as a gumshoe for The Star Weekly for six years covering the news of my bittersweet Mistress Amman, the capital of Jordan, before turning my back on journalism to become a pencil pusher.
I write pieces that cover art, movies, theatre, music, politics and society. I write about anything that one cannot imagine.
By the way writing is as good as sex.
At the moment I am working as a morning radio show host at Radio Jordan’s 96.3 FM and producer at IKBIS.com
My Morning Madness show on 93. FM is on Mondays, Thursday and Saturday between 7:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. This is the online link www.jrtv.joinstream.net
My time is divided between ‘my lovely wife and daugher Amie’, family, writing and creating comics, I had a comic strip, The Dark Side of the Spoon. My characters are on an extended paid holiday. I am also a professional time thief!

Bottom line: Slit my wrists and ink will pour out…but since I am using a keyboard instead of a pen..the liquid in my veins changed to 0s/1s.
