I first met Michael Gross in a restroom at the Motor City Comic Con years ago. Of course, I officially met him at his booth there a few hours later. At that time, we laughed about our earlier meeting.
Michael is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He appreciated all of his fans at the show and he talked about his career and many other topics. It really was a great time hanging with him for a bit.
Years later, I met him again at REWind Con. Despite the organizational issues with REWind Con, I had an absolute blast there. I met so many different actors who were making rare appearances. I also had the chance to spend good amounts of time with the various celebrities, including Michael.
I was alone at the time and we started talking about trying to work these conventions by yourself. He had his own issues with working solo. We both understood the issues the other had.
Michael demonstrated his selfie-taking abilities, which helped him and his fans (like me). By Michael taking the pictures, neither of us had to struggle to find someone. Michael solved his problem and thereby solved my problem (and the problem of many solo fans).
The other advantage is having a picture that Michael took. I Michael Gross selfie! It makes it a bit more interesting. Of course, the picture below is from someone else who captured the moment of Michael taking our selfie.
