Hey, I'm Michael!

Toronto, Ontario

I'm Michael and I'm a filmmaker and a musician. I live in Toronto where I operate my production company, Body Parts Productions. I play saxophone and piano and I sing. I used to work on a cruise ship - it was sweet, but also totally weird. I'm an active member of the Toronto music scene and I direct music videos for a lot of my buds.  Some of my major creative influences include Charlie Chaplin, Sarah Vaughan, Jill Soloway, Cannonball Adderley, Mel Brooks, Virginia Wolf, Robert Altman, Ingmar Bergman, Hubert Selby, Woody Allen, Philip Roth, Mahalia Jackson, Nina Simone, Stanley Kubrick, Jacques Brel, Stevie Wonder, Robin Williams, and Larry David. I've never been overly concerned with one creative medium over another; I like to find a home for each of my ideas - sometimes it's a movie, sometimes it's a children's book, sometimes it's a song. I'm working on a bunch of different things right now which I'm exicted to share with you very soon. I'm stoked to be a part of the Seed&Spark fam! Hope you enjoy my movies!
