Michael has been bringing history to life through his documentary films for over thirty years, exploring topics as diverse as the immigration of Eastern European Jews to America to the infamous case of Lizzie Borden. He has produced and created over ten films and is currently working on a feature documentary earmarked for broadcast television.

His vast technical experience in film is strengthened by his membership in the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage and Motion Picture Employees, the professional craft union that represents every form of entertainment; Michael has been a working senior journeyman for nearly thirty years and has served as propmaster for over fifty national Broadway tours that include Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Cats, Lion King and Hairspray, just to name a few.

His mastery of technical theater and film sets him apart in both arenas, especially film.
