"Sad Man"

(from the film "Samuel Bleak")

Welcome to my official website!

Growing up in Chicago, I loved music and movies. So it seemed only natural that I would combine these two passions to pave my path in life.

I studied composition at Columbia College of Chicago, then moved to Los Angeles to study film scoring at the USC. Since then, I've been working steadily as a media composer for various projects - concentrating primarily in film.

In these pages You can hear some of my work, watch some clips from my films, and get an idea of the passion and commitment I bring to all of my projects.

I hope you enjoy what you hear and visit often!

Being a great musician is not enough for a film composer, and Michael is much more than just a musician or composer. He is a filmmaker well versed in film theory. He understands the narrative, mood, and rhythm of the films he scores. It was a pleasure to collaborate with him and I look forward to working with him again.
