About Michael

Michael Pejsach (Pay-Sah) served as “talent,” and has produced/directed several television and video productions. He served as talent, designed, co-wrote and co-produced the award-winning “CPR Skills For Saving Lives,” for which he earned a Bronze Award at the International Film and Television Festival of New York (1980). 

He also wrote and appeared on the TV magazine show, “Iowa Edition,” for ABC affiliate, WOI, TV, Ames, Iowa, doing 2-minute health TV spots.

In the late 1990′s Michael also produced several effective TV public service announcements covering Mammography and Pap Smear Exams.

In addition to his television work, Michael produced and directed the first ever University of Georgia musical theater production.  A stage was constructed in the ballroom of the University Union to present “The Fantasticks.” It was a smash hit with a packed house each night of the show. In addition to producing and directing, Michael played Mortimer the “man who dies.”  While teaching at the University of South Carolina he played “El Gallo” (“The Fantasticks,” again) for Town Theater,  one of the South’s oldest community theaters, Columbia, South Carolina.  

Michael has also performed, as Sky Masterson, in Guys an Dolls in New York City; the The Wall (92nd Street “Y”);  Cactus Flower (Igor, Sumter Little theater)); and “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” at State University of New York, Farmingdale, NY, among other stage productions.

Recently, Michael served as “Voice of God,” (announcer) for the New Orleans Human Rights Campaign Annual Dinner Extravaganza, 2010, 2011, 2012, and the upcoming 2013 program (June 15, 2013). Other voice acting credits include, “Kids Hope, USA,” and Apple, Inc. “Regional Presentation,”

In 2010 Michael returned to the stage with the Jefferson Parish Performing Arts Society’s production of “The Fantasticks.” He played Hucklebee,  the boy’s father.

PERSONAL: Michael grew up in New York City. His mailing addresses included homes in Manhattan, “KewGardens,” and “Rego Park,” in Queens, and in Flatbush, Brooklyn.   He met his wife, Karen, in “home room” at Newtown High School, Elmhurst, Queens (his last NYC address). Dr. Pejsach has three sons, his proudest achievement, Tim, Josh and Ben.

Michael has lived in the same house in Kenner, Louisiana, for the past 25 years.  After Hurricane Katrina, he and Karen persevered and reconstructed the kitchen for the second time, as well as doing the repairs to the entire first floor of their home.

Michael (AKA, Dr. Michael) enjoys martial arts sparring (5th Dan TaeKwonDo), web design, movies, thinking, and, of course, family.  If he had his way he would breed Bulldogs albeit he compromised and now has a Boston Terrier, Max.
