Mike Swindle is a second-year med student who enjoys punch-dancing to 80s songs, eating fried rice, and hanging out with the other 70,000 Mikes found in the USA, especially the other 10 Mikes here at Case. Mike really loved choreographing and dancing in last year's performance so much that he became a dance director for this year's Doc Opera to share his appreciation and love.

Tegan Schmidt is an M2 from California. She played softball for Stanford and consequently is now two-thirds robot (has had many orthopedic surgeries).
