My Story

From California, to Texas, to New York.

A southern California native, Michael grew up playing every sport imaginable. It wasn’t until the age of eight that he discovered his love for performance.

Michael recently made his international tour debut as Henri Baurel in An American In Paris, dir./choreo. by Christopher Wheeldon. Other select credits include Beast in Beauty & the Beast (Theatre Under the Stars, Houston), Claude in Hair (Geva Theatre Center, Rochester), John Newton in Amazing Grace (First National Tour, dir. Gabriel Barre), and Warren in Meet Me In St. Louis (The MUNY, St. Louis). He has performed in other such notable venues as Carnegie Hall and the Disneyland Resort. He has shared the stage with such artists as Kristin Chenoweth, Andrew Lippa, Ken Page, Take 6, Jonathan Butler, and Oleta Adams. 

Michael received his BFA in Musical Theatre from Texas State University (Eat ‘Em Up, Cats!), under the direction of Kaitlin Hopkins. 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.

He now resides in Manhattan.
