As the son of a heart surgeon and an OBGYN and the brother of an MIT Ocean Engineer, Mike Damus felt a great responsibility to lighten the mood. Though intent on starting for the Chicago Bears, he found quick success as an understudy in Neil Simon's Broadway production of Lost in Yonkers and then reprised the role in the film. Damus went on to shoot over a dozen television pilots and several unsung series, such as My Guys, Teen Angel, Brutally Normal and Men Women & Dogs. A graduate of UCLA, Damus has also found employment as a writer and director of commercials.
