About Michael

I moved to Raleigh in 2006 after 18 years in Los Angeles. The last 10 years there I worked mostly as a Music Editor. I'm a member of the Television Academy and the Editors Guild (MPSE). I was the Music Editor on "LOST" for the first 2 seasons and the last 5 seasons of "The Practice" and many other episodes of Television. I also worked on many Feature Films at just about every studio in LA. I even got the chance to work on several films at Skywalker. I was among the first editors in LA to "Go Digital" in 1992 with a 2 channel digital audio system. My background in Music and an interest in computers made me very valuable to composers and music editors making the transition from "Mag" to Digital. I'm very excited to find such an active community of "Industry" professionals here in Raleigh and I look forward to connecting and collaborating on projects in the future.
