Hey, I'm Michael!

New York, New York

I'm a writer, director and producer working across film, television, theatre, digital media, and large-scale events. I'm an alumni of the USC Schools of Theatre & Cinema/Television in Los Angeles, and the British American Drama Academy in London. Social impact plays a vital role in the projects I develop and the stories I choose to tell. It's a priviledge to be a member of this community.


Current TV projects include Montana (Finalist, Sundance's Episodic Story Lab 2016) Pac Heights (Semi-Finalist, Series Fest 2016), Spice It Up! (Eko/Warner Music Group), and The Fools Errand (Barn Arts Residency 2017).


Recent theatre directing credits include productions at The Old Vic Theatre (Artistic Director, Kevin Spacey), New World Stages, Skirball Center, Yale University, University of Southern California, American Conservatory Theatre, IAMA Theatre Company, The Magic Theatre, The Flea, NAMT, The Lark, Fringe NYC, Sam French Festival, Midtown International Theatre Festival, Planet Connections Theatre Festivity, and New York Theatre Barn, where I was Associate Artistic Director. I have also directed in a number of non-traditional venues including The American Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Hall, The Plaza Hotel, The Rainbow Room, and the 4,000 seat Cushing Memorial Amphitheatre atop Mt. Tamalpais in California, where our immersive, outdoor production of Peter Pan recently played a sold-out run.


I was the Assistant Musical Stager on the Broadway revival of Sunday In The Park With George at Studio 54, I've AD’d projects at The Gershwin Theatre on Broadway, NAMT, The Theatre at St. Clemens, American Conservatory Theatre, and The Boston Court Performing Arts Center, and I've Assistant Directed live, large-scale theatrical productions for television and film, including Restoring Love at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, and Company, starring Neil Patrick Harris, Stephen Colbert, and Patti LuPone, at the NY Philharmonic.


I have directed numerous music videos, comedy videos, and documentary shorts, and I shares my adventure stories and photography at TheAdventureAddict.com. I also have an extensive background in the social impact space. In 2013, I helped launch All Star Code, a national non-profit that bridges opportunity gaps for young men of color.


I am a California Arts Scholar, a member of SDC, Lincoln Center Director's Lab, and Old Vic New Voices, a lifelong vegetarian, and a cultural carnivore.
