Los Angeles, CA USA


Michael is a veteran line producer who began his career in New York on an early-80s children’s show whose name even the creators cannot remember. His years in feature films and episodic TV give him a breadth of experience and knowledge that allow him to evaluate production issues from multiple angles and to make decisions that best suit the needs of the client.

Since moving to Los Angeles in 1991, he has produced ads and branded content for a wide variety of clients, from Air New Zealand to Disney to Honda. He’s worked internationally and all over North America on commercials featuring celebrities, explosions, the military, pursuit vehicles, and fake-looking fake sharks. Besides TV spots, Michael has produced documentaries, worked as an Assistant Director, ran a production service, and acted in several national commercials.
