As a visual content creator, Michael has spent the last twenty years creating photographs and video to align with his clients’ objectives. His love for the movies can be seen in his cinematic sense of lighting combined with his ability to tell powerful stories. During his career, Michael has created content for Fortune 500 companies, sports and fashion brands, national magazines, and local Northwest startup businesses. With this work, Michael has also gained valuable skills producing projects, managing crews, being nimble with changing environments and circumstances, and making people feel at ease in non-typical circumstances.

Michael earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts from Lewis and Clark College. During his four years at Lewis and Clark, Michael took a wide range of business classes along with his required coursework. He also spent a semester studying in Turkey and another semester in New York City.
