About Michael

I'm a director working on commercials and my first feature film, and in development on an 8-episode non-scripted series. I'm also an occasional voice-over artist (commercials for Dodge Truck, Home Depot and Infiniti Motors).

My background is documentary stills, but creating original work from the depths of my mind has been equally rewarding, and is now taking up increasing amounts of my time and interest. If I really need to zone out, I might be found swimming (formerly at UT-Austin) or building a table, meditating with the steady rhythms of the orbital sander.

I’m a dual citizen of Ireland and the US, but I don’t love borders, and certainly not the walls that delineate them. I was born in Detroit and raised just north, but Austin was equally formative. Home is now on the edge of the great wide-open of west Marin in the San Francisco Bay.

My commercial work is at
