Michael has always had a strong desire to be an actor. Born in a small country town in New Zealand he never thought it possible. Desiring a creative outlet, he would re-enact movie scenes in the shower, and would create fantastical stories in his head at the age of 7. Later in life he would find himself living in Brisbane Australia where his drive to act would once again take hold. Michael would make his debut performance in 2009 as Rowdy in the critically acclaimed (and eventually sold out season of) Pentimento Productions' "The Truth About Kookaburras" and again to a sold-out season in 2012. Since then, he has been working within the theatre and film industry with gusto. Michael's tenacity in strengthening his craft, has seen him train with renowned Directors and Facilitators such as Kim Farrant, Bill Hughes, Stephen Lance and Robert Marchand. His passion for creating opportunity and work for himself and fellow QLD artists is what drives him to achieve excellence.
