Hello and thanks for visiting. Photography, music, writing and digital content production are the creative extensions of my basic need to share stories. From Real Housewives of Orange County to Music Workshop... family portraits to behind the scenes events, my background in producing high quality entertainment, educational programing and photography is deep. I love helping people, companies and organizations tell their stories and share their messages in as many ways as possible. Those ways are always changing and growing, but a good story told well, will always win. This site will give you a glimpse into my style and scope. I look forward to hearing from you if you need some help telling your story.

“To say Michael is creative is a massive understatement. His ability to tell stories through a lens is remarkable. More importantly, as a collaborator, Michael has a tremendous capacity for seeing the vision of others and adding just the right touches to take that vision far beyond its initial potential. “

- Kelly Navari Marketing Manager Buildable

“Michael did fantastic work. He was a true partner from start to finish; helping developing the creative content, schedule and manage the shoot, and do all of the follow up work to ensure we had an exceptional story to tell about our candidates. He is great to work with and our clients were incredibly happy with the final products - in part because they were integral to us winning both of those campaigns.

- Jake Weigler Partner at Hilltop Public Solutions

Michael’s work…and his work ethic…blew me out of the water.  We brought Michael into document a difficult and politically touchy behind-the-scenes situation that he handled with grace and ease.  He demonstrated a keen eye for beauty and the unexpected.  His photos captured the rich, nuanced and layered moments of the day.  His artistry told the story of the behind-the-scenes situation in a way that opened my eyes to aspects I had never seen before…and I was there in person!

- Douglas Ross, Founder & President  Evolution Media

Michael's creative vision and storytelling ability is truly unsurpassed. He has always delighted us by finding ways to tell our story in meaningful and beautiful ways, replete with vivid details about our work that even we had never noticed. Michael has been instrumental in helping us tell our story to our customers.
