Michael has been a filmmaker since he was twelve years old, writing scripts and making small productions with friends starting with Super 8 film and old 3/4-inch videotape cameras. His directing experience covers 20 years of stage productions and more than a dozen credits for music video, commercials, and narrative short film. Over the years he has worked for other aspiring filmmakers until starting Bombshell Studios in 2009. His films have been accepted and won awards in film festivals nationwide (i.e., “FACES”, “No-Good Maxine”, “Elimination”).
Michael has also held marketing and web-design positions that have given him an inside look at industries playing a key role in modern movie distribution.
Michael’s education includes an MFA from the Professional Acting Training Program at Play-maker’s Repertory Company and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a BA in Theatre from the University of Missouri at Columbia.
He lives in Hillsborough with his wonderful wife and partner in Bombshell Studios.
