Since his first film project in late 1999, Michael has made appearances in 35 feature films (18 in principle or featured roles), 55 short films (45 in principle or featured roles), 57 television appearances (40 as either himself or as a featured character), 14 music videos, 10 commercials, and 4 webisode comedies... that's an amazing 175 projects... 167 of them in the 4 years since 2003. Michael keeps busy with a wide range of projects, accepting roles where he can infuse himself with the art. He credits his outgoing spirit, energy, and unabashed nature to his decade+ as a fine arts model.
Says Michael, "I love giving a director more than they thought they could get... more than they might ask... scenes and variations that give more options in post. Its far better to have something they might not use, than to be in edit and wish they had shot something they did not. Participation in a project makes me a partner in its success."
