In 1992, Michael took up the gauntlet thrown down by his therapist and auditioned for his first play. The play, titled “The Murder Room” was produced at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre of Santa Monica, California. Armed with a bogus head shot attached to an even more bogus resume, he stood in line with the rest of the hopefuls in the set yard behind the theatre, took his shot and a week or so later was offered the lead; a lead where he portrayed three different characters with three different dialects. Over the next eight years or so, Michael was privileged to work in another twenty or so productions often rehearsing a play while performing another. While Michael’s first love is the theatre, he enjoys the occasional time in front of a lens but also takes enormous pride in his voice work. When once asked about his process… “Just tell the truth. What else is there?”
Acting is what Michael does but it ain’t who he is and he demonstrates little regard or patience for actors confused by the difference. Michael dedicates his work to his dog Viggo who after over ten years continues to take up more than his share of the bed.
