JTA Welcomes Mike H to the Staff
[Mike H | 06/29/05]

     Hi, I'm Mike Heiken, a new guy here at JTA. Allow me to introduce myself:
     You may have seen me as alias: mikeskywalker1969 on the boards here at JTA. I'm mainly active in the customs section, though I'm known to post in other areas from time to time.
     I'm an original Star Wars Generation Fan. I saw the original Star Wars in 1977 at the ripe old age of 8! That was the perfect age to be introduced to that galaxy far, far away, because it was the right age to be blown away by that film with a childhood sense of wonder and amazement that maybe you wouldn't have if you were older. For that reason, the film still inspires today, and I continue on my twenty-eight year path of collecting joy! It also has allowed me to meet up with people who share my enthusiasm like Pete & Chuck, who created JTA, along with Mike, to share their love of Star Wars and give us all this great archive with the help of still others who also love these films and collecting.
     The other great site that you will ALWAYS see me on is The Kentucky Star Wars Collector's Club! I am a very active member of that group where members get together to buy, sell, and trade Star Wars "stuff." If you get a chance, check us out!
     Other things of note: I'm married, have a three year old daughter who also loves Star Wars and went with me to all four days of CIII! It's great to be here at JTA! Always feel free to email me anytime. I'm always eager to talk Star Wars!
     "May The Force be with you, always,"
     -Mike H. (Mike Skywalker 1969)

     Oh, you all know our latest staff member already because we are sure that you stopped by BeJedi from time to time! are a few words from the man himself!
     Just old enough to have seen RotJ in the cinemas and remember it, I'm an enthusiast Star Wars fan of the old-school generation. More than 10 years ago I made my first appearance in the Star Wars Internet community and am still here to stay ... I ran through an extensive "Star Wars web site management" training while working for Pete Hoccom's "The Private Universe" first and later for, where I tried to do something for the European fans and collectors out there. unfortunately came to a premature end as it was growing just too quickly and so I found myself looking for a new on-line home ... which I have found now in! I'm happy to join up with the staff here and I hope that I will be able to share the Star Wars Experience with JTA's visitors ...
     I am sure he will...and not only will Joris be a familiar face to the community, but he's going to share with us many of the unique features that used to be at BeJedi! Keep an eye out for new features at JTA in the near future (one was hinted at in Joris' intro). Welcome to JTA Joris!
