About 12 years ago, Michael began thinking that there was more to life than acting, and considered directing as a possible 2nd career. Then another calling found Michael. Shortly after Apple announced Final Cut Pro was shipping to the public, Michael decided that it was indeed time to plunge into the world of digital filmmaking and Non Linear Editing, and went out and mortgaged his families future on a FCP NLE system and a VX1000 camcorder. He has been a happy man ever since.
Since July of 1999, Michael has cut a PSA for a Non Profit Organization, directed and cut a music video about handicapped children and horse therapy, co directed and cut a historical documentary on women who dressed as men to fight in the American Civil War; which was just sold to a distributor in NY, and is finishing his own short movie he wrote and directed. He morphed into the founder, catalyst, and founder of the Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group, (formerly lafcpug). http://www.lafcpug.org which presently has over 6000 members world wide and is growing by about 100 members per month. lacpug meets monthly in Hollywood and also co-produces the famous “SuperMeets” around the world.a community supporting and equipping digital editors.
