I am a life long artist with both traditional and digital skills. My digital and 3D skills began in 2000 and I have worked on many game development cycles, documentary productions and in these past 5 years as a theme park design and fabrication artist, utilizing all of my traditional sculpting and digital 3D and CAD design skills. I am an accomplished writer having published several training books as well as adventure stories. Additionally, I have an extensive background in working with music composers as well as voice actors and overseeing a development team of talent in all disciplines from conceptual design and story writing, through modeling, rigging and animation productions, then, finally, to publication or installation. Most recently I have been honored to have designed, fabricated and project managed several themed experiences for Give Kids The World Village in Kissimmee, Florida.

"Michael has worked for our resort for the past 4 years, having designed our new Serendipity II ship. He also served as overall project manager, overseeing all demolition of the older ship and site cleanup, as well as fabrication of the many props and characters for our 70 foot beautiful ship. Michael has also provided us with many crates and barrels for our Jurassic Junction Railroad Station, a new compass rose medallion within the Castle of Miracles and our highly praised signature family experience, Stellar's Star Experience."
"Michael was instrumental during our development of TORN VR. He and his art team helped elevate our production to a higher level then expected and truly appreciated. Michael's attention to direction, speed and performance of work was truly professional."
"I had the pleasure of working with Michael many years ago and we have remained close friends for the last 18 years. Michael is an exceptional 3D artist and training instructor."
