Michael is an actor, singer, and dancer born and raised in Orange County, California. Growing up playing every sport imaginable, it wasn’t until the age of eight that Michael discovered his love for performing.
Michael graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre from Texas State University (Eat 'Em Up, Cats!), under the direction of Kaitlin Hopkins. In 2013, Michael was a top finalist for the National High School Musical Theatre Awards at Broadway's Minskoff Theater. He has performed in other notable venues such as Carnegie Hall and the Disneyland Resort. He has shared the stage with such artists as Kristin Chenoweth, Andrew Lippa, Take 6, Jonathan Butler, and Oleta Adams. He has studied in England under renowned Shakespearean actors and teachers at Shakespeare's Globe and Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust. Proud alum of The Performing Arts Project and Broadway Theatre Project.
Outside of performing, Michael is a certified personal trainer, huge college football fan (Fight On Trojans!), friend of many (or so he likes to think), and proud pug owner.
Michael is currently writing plays and hopes to one day create a theater camp for the disabled.
He now resides in Manhattan.
